There's nothing to uninstall for the JDK, just delete the directory. As for the JRE: what error message are you seeing?

This is an OS problem, not a Java problem. Check your event log - there might be something obvious in there. Make sure the JRE isn't running while you are trying to uninstal it - there's been a long standing bug that means processes can get "lost" so check the task manager for java* processes. Try uninstalling it in Safe mode. If none of that works, your only option is delete the files manually, then delete the registry entires manually. But I wouldn't recommend that unless you are quite confident you know what to delete.
