SO... I just reformatted my HD completely and went to reinstall java (jdk-1_5_0_01-windows-i586-p) and I have run into Error 1722 as it completing the installation. I checked the site and it said to simply try installing again. Did this and the same problem happened. I was told that I would have to scour my HD for certain files and delete them as they could not be removed through add/remove. Can anyone please help?

The exact error is... Error 1722. There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact support personal or package vendor.
