You can uninstall older versions of Java manually in the same way as you would uninstall any other software from your Windows computer.
Older versions of Java may appear in the program list as J2SE, Java 2, Java SE or Java Runtime Environment.
You may need administrator privileges to remove programs.
If you run into issues removing Java, run the Microsoft Fix it utility to repair corrupted files and registry keys that prevents programs from being completely uninstalled or blocking new installations and updates.
