macroman,
-----------------------------------------------------------
Set Your Computer to Show All Files
  1. Click Start.
  2. Click My Computer.
  3. Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
  4. Select the View Tab.
  5. Under the Hidden files and folders heading, select Show hidden files and folders.
  6. Uncheck Hide protected operating system files (recommended).
  7. Click Yes to confirm.
  8. Uncheck the Hide file extensions for known file types.
  9. Click OK.
In addition, go to Start, Search. When you click on 'All files and folders' on the left pane, click on the 'More advanced options' at the bottom. Make sure that 'Search system folders', 'Search hidden files and folders', and 'Search subfolders' are checked.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Use My Computer and go to C:\Program Files\Java\
Do you know how to do that?
Double click C:, then doubleclick Program Files, then doubleclick Java.
Then click View, details, and write down the name of every FOLDER.
You should see a folder named "jre1.6.0_03"
Look for one that is NOT "jre1.6.0_03" but maybe something like jre1.4.0_xxxx, indicating it belongs to this old version -> "Java 2 Runtime Environment, SE v1.4.0_03". Tell me if you find it, and if so, post back the name.

macroman,
Your log is good. let's finish up.

C:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.4.0_03\ <== this folder only

You may have to first open the folder, choose View, Details, and delete all the underlying files and folders before an entire folder can be deleted.
If you need to delete underlying files in a folder and are unable to do so:
Right click the file set for deletion, and check Properties to see if it's read-only. Uncheck the read-only box, click Apply and OK. Then retry Delete.

Remove A Program with CCleaner
Open CCleaner. In the Left Pane, click Tools. Verify that Uninstall is highlighted in color, or click on it.
Click and Highlight the Following Program, and click the Run Uninstaller button.

Take extra care in answering questions posed by any Uninstaller. Some questions may be worded to deceive you into Keeping the program.

Open CCleaner if it's not already running.
  • Select Cleaner Settings.

- Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
- On the System Restore tab, put a Check mark in the Turn Off System Restore check box.

If you are not prompted to reboot, do it on your own.

Enable WinXP System Restore
- Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
- On the System Restore tab, Clear the Check mark beside the Turn Off System Restore check box.
