    So I was about to install 64bit java on my 64bit PC, but I've came to a dead end.
    The first thing I need to do is to remove java, right? So I went to the uninstalling program in windows, and uninstalled everything with the word 'Java' except these to:
    " Java (TM) 6 Update 29 ";
    " Java (TM) 6 Update 29 (64 bit) ".

    When I try to uninstall it, I keep getting Error 1723 (google that up if you wish).

    Now, you think that I should just install the 64bit anyways, right? Well, here's the problem, it tells me that I already have it installed, and that I need to re-install it. But when I re-install it, it just goes to the uninstalling wizard and pops the same error!
    help.

    Did you try a third-party uninstaller?

    I thought you meant Java, not JRE :( anyways, run regedit and look for and delete entries pertaining to java or jre?

    Is that really a good idea?
    I don't want to screw-up with my registry...

    Also, http://www.tomshardw...java-error-1723

    Keep in mind it is usually a good idea to have both the 32 bit and 64 bit JRE installed for compatibility purposes.

    Edit - I would tell you where to start on what to delete but I am at school and can't access regedit on these pc's -_-

    Did you try restarting the computer and then trying the reinstall?

    Edit: Never mind. Probably won't work.

    Try running a registry cleaner it should fix this thing . If you don't have any then download ccleaner here , run scan registry & fix all issues .

    hallelujah, I found jre6 on my laptop.
    Hopefully putting it into Program Files will do the trick and let me delete the darn thing...

    EDIT: F*ck yes, I finally deleted that b*tch.
