Since I'm stuck in deciding for sure if I should just delete
(I use the java.exe from C:\Program Files\Java[javaversion]\bin, which I explicitly set in my path environment variable):
Is there a record set or map or database in Windows XP keeping track of which file belongs to which program ?
An online database for this purpose where I can have a look to be sure?
A third party program?
Unlike in linked question I would like to know about static records, maybe created at installation time. You never know if the running instance will touch every one of its potential files for this instance. Also, this is going nowhere: running every installed program to see if it touches java.exe. Maybe someone already developed a script or similar, employing Process Explorer and/or Process Monitor and/or handle and/or something else to index all files once or regularly, retrospectively?
