I believe you will need to completely un-install 7 and re-install 6.

Google shows a lot of links for un-installing and installing Java.  I would not know which one would be good for you to use.

No, all I can do is give the search link I used.  https://www.google.com/search?q=script+uninstall+java+7  You probably know more about it than I do.  You can click on "Request Attention" to get other to look at your question.
