how to remove the microsoft JVM

I just managed to get rid of some spyware that was apparently installed via some bug in the microsoft JVM.  I am not able to install the patch because apparently it will not install over win2K service pack 4, which, incidentally, annoys the living crap out of me.  But I digress...

How can I remove the Microsoft JVM?  I have Sun's VM installed and that is all I need.  I even disabled Java for IE, but apparently that is not enough to close this hole.  There used to be some tool for removing the JVM but that is no longer availlable it would seem.  

So, someone PLEASE tell me, how do I remove this thing?  

(windows 2000 SP4)

thanks.
