Trying to install old JDK

I am trying to install the old Java 2 SDK 1.4.2_18, due to that I want to have it to make sure I am compatible with our build system. However, it always complains that the JVM is running. What shall I do? I have changed the JAVA_home and removed Java from the system path and rebooted. It still think the JVM is running. Any clue what how it is running and from where?

Can it be the java update manager that are running in the system tray?
Whats operating system here? If its unix, you can this command,

ps -aef | grep java

to see running java processes.

It was the updater, but it wasn't located in the tray. I started process explorer.
