Control Panel : Java Glossary


Control Panel
The place in Windows where you configure system-wide parameters. You can also remove software there or access the Java Plugin Control Panel. You can find out what fonts and hardware is installed. The Control Panel is controlled by *.cpl files in winnt\system32. To delete Control Panel entries, remove the corresponding *.cpl files usually in C:\WINNT\system32\. For example, the Java Control Panel is called jpicpl32.cpl. Make backups in case you delete the wrong files.

The entries in the add/remove programs appear to be controlled by the registry. I found you can get rid of orphans by deleting the corresponding entries with regedit.
