Does exacly what it says on the tin! And if Visual Studio 6 or some other app reinstalls it just run it again. Thanks MS!

This utility worked great for me where other methods would not. Many sites said to use the command

RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection java.inf,UnInstall

on the Run line. This method, however, failed:

Advanced INF Install
Error: could not locate INF file ‘java.inf’.
[OK]

Another suggestion:

Start -> Run, then
regsvr32 /u msjava.dll

received this error:

RegSvr32
Loadlibrary(msjava.dll) failed – The specified module could not be found.
[OK]

So I finally found this utility, ran it, then checked my Advanced tab in IE's Internet Options (Tools menu) and found there was no longer an MS Java section. MS Java had been causing me Runtime errors, so I was glad to be able to finally find something to uninstall it. Thanks!

I agree with lordcyber. Microsoft Java VM is a valuable integrated part of my Windows system, but only due to the unfortunate circumstance of bad code here and there. I've still uninstalled it on one of my machines (I'm optimistic), and as the program does exactly what it says it will do and has (so far) yielded no complications, I can rate it nothing lower than a 5.

middle of the road review on this one. but I am giving it a 5 regardless of my personal opinion. I am sure there are folks who need or want to use it.
now for my opinion,why would anyone want to remove the microsoft java machine if it's already installed?
I had to track down a copy of the microsoft java machine program so I could install it on a windows xp home SP1A system my company had purchased, as the included sun java simply would not work on certain company websites that the system needs to access on a daily basis. Were it not for people who sloppily code websites without regard to the fact that unless you already have the ms java machine installed or not, I would gladly use sun java instead of microsoft. Until then though I am forced to keep on using it.
