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?

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