Corrupt Java Runtime

hello,
my java runtime enviroment became corrupt and now I cant see applets or anything. Whenever i try to reinstall it or install a new one it tells me that its already installed and that I have to uninstall the old one first, but since it wont let me uninstall i cant do anything. How can i manually uninstall java runtime envronmnent so that i can install a fresh copy?

Thanks

Uninstall the old Java Runtime software with Windows Installer cleanup utility
