I found a link to these instructions in the latest issue of Windows Secrets newsletter. It’s a great newsletter. There is a free version, as well as a paid version. There is no set price for the paid version. You pay what you think it is worth. It is worth far more than I pay for it. I couldn’t afford to pay what it’s worth.
Anyway, one of the articles was about some problems with the Microsoft Java Virtual Machine. They link to a Sun Microsystems page with instructions on how to remove the MSJVM. You can read the instructions at http://www.java.com/en/download/help/uninstall_msvm.xml.
