Hi all,

I am new to java.I have tried to install java 1.6 udate 24 for 32bit.But later found that my dell laptop has the follwoing configuration: processor core2 duo intel ,System type 64 bit.So I thought may be I should be installing the java for windows x64 version and I installed it.Later on I deleted it i mean all folder and then downloaded the jse-jdk java 1.6 udate 24 for 32 bit the usual one.Somehow due to some reason I had to delete it .I did not uninstall any of those from Programs and Features .Now I understood the difference between 64bit and 32 bit.
Unfortunately am unable to install any of the version now even though I have deleted them.Even the unistall from Programs and Features still has those in Control panel and I get the following error when i try unistalling them.Error 1723.
Also when i dowloaded the jdk1.6 u24 , while installing it asked if I would like to reinstall as it alredy exists but when I say yes to reinstall i get 1723 again.

Error 1723:
there is a problem with this Windows Installer package.A DLL required for this install to complete could not be run.Contact your support personnel or package vendor.

Please help me out.Also I tried testing if it were a problem with the windows installer but other programs like skype could be easily installed and uninstalled.
What are the next step which I should take so that I can install the suual jdk1.6 u24 and start working on java for my course.

I have a vista home premium with sp2 as operating system.And I have also noticed two IE now in my system.One is the regualr 32 bit amd there is another one which says 64bit edition.how should I deal with this problem now.


Appreciate your help
