Java Inanity

I just found out that java on windows now overrides the system path and always runs a version as defined in the registry.  Only does this on Windows.  Every other OS doesn't even have a registry causing secret hidden problems.  Whoever made that design decision should be keelhauled.

I found out that deleting java.exe, javaw.exe, and javaws.exe from c:\windows\system32 took care of the issue.  So dumb . . . .
