Dependencies: Administrator rights
Stealth: ? Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch JavaRa.exe.
What's new? "JavaRa can now be found at SingularLabs. I have since moved on to other projects.

I thank you for your support throughout the years."

I haven't tried this yet, but it sounds interesting. I would like to know, though, if it also removes registry entries and files/folders inevitably left behind by poorly implemented software.

I've been using this program for several months now and like this program so much that I now use it at work as part of my monthly maintenance on the computers there. It recovers tons of disk space, removes the annoying startup entry that notifies you of new versions and the Sun download manager. This is great stuff!

Great little piece of software. Although I notice recent versions do seem to uninstall the previous older version before proceeding with installation.

this is exactly the kind of freeware we need. had enough with those JRE craps that polute my computer.

Great program. Tested this on multiple computers and saved some real disk space.

Think it should be integrated into CCleaner or some other system cleaning program but very glad to have it.

This program is very intuitive and easy to use, I was able
to use it to remove old Java from Vista that the installer
program would not do. Excellent program.

JavaRa 1.16 beta is now available on website

Can anyone verify if JavaRa breaks the java updater (jucheck.exe)?

I just tried upgrading Java to the newest version and I got an upgrade error with regutils.dll. Uninstalling Java with Revo Uninstaller and reinstalling Java works again.

V1.16 beta

According to the website, JavaRa is no longer developed. However, a definition update (for JavaRa to be able to remove latest Java versions) is available.
