Some other java cpl files I've found are:
javacpl.cpl
jpicpl32.cpl

You may wish to search for all .cpl to see if you can find it. - Try  searching in C:\Windows\System32\

Hi

Ok forgot to mention that i had 2 x java logo in the control panel but i have now removed jpicpl32.cpl
which has removed one of them. Do you know how the other can be removed? I don't have Java installed at the moment but if i do re-install it then i have two again.

Download ShellObjectEditor.

http://www.tropictech.de/modules/PDdownloads/singlefile.php?cid=1&lid=5

After installation, right click inside "Shell Object Editor" to switch to Expert Mode to view all the Namespace objects. Select your Java icon entry and delete it.

Also, you can check following registry entries or similar path::
HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ ControlPanel \ NameSpace

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ ControlPanel \ NameSpace

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Control Panel \ Cpls

HKEY_CURRENT_USER \  SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Control Panel \ Cpls

if you fully remove Java then it should remove the CPL icon from the Control Panel.  Java is reasonably essential for all web browsers, but if you have a 64bit OS, you will need to install both 32 bit and 64bit versions of Java, to cover all versions of web browsers.

the JAVACPL.EXE file will contorl this, and is found in the BIN folder of your java install - C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin or C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin depending on your OS version.

if you have removed it completely and deleted the JAVA folder, then you could run CCleaner to clean up the registry for you.  my advice would be to leave it installed if you will be using web browsers (it will also remind you when a new version is released).
