JAVA Problems

Window 7 64 bit system needs 32 bit version of JAVA for some of the applications we run. I tried to uninstall JAVA so I could install the appropriate version and the message was that it uninstalled but it still shows up in the Program list. In control panel both versions show up but clicking on either gets an "Application not found error." One version, 1.6.0_25 has an icon that looks like a broken link and the other, 1.6.0_29 that looks like a blank page. How do I get rid of the old version of JAVA so I will just have the correct version?

Thank you!

Delete the JAVA folder under "Program Files" and "Program Files(x86)"...

Then reinstall the version you want/need...

No, I deleted it and then installed the version I wanted and this is what I now have.

Does anyone else have any suggestions? I removed JAVA via the control panel and deleted the folder but still get a message telling me that I need to uninstall the previous version before I can install the new version.
