Fix jre.msi Missing Issue While Uninstalling Java From Windows

While trying to uninstall java you are getting message like below:
The feature you are trying to use is on a
network resource that is unavailable.

Click OK to try again, or enter an alternate path to a
folder containing installation package 'jre.msi' in the
box below.
I got this message in Windows 7. I tried to uninstall Java 7 from my laptop. After uninstall, I got some message that a restart was required to complete the changes. I chose to do it later. After some time when I restarted Windows, I still saw Java 7 in installed programs list in Control Panel. And when I tried to uninstall it again I got above message and couldn't finish uninstall process.

I found a solution by using Microsoft Fix it utility software for programs that cannot be installed or uninstalled. I ran the program. It searched for all the programs that can be uninstalled. After I selected my corrupted Java installation from the list, it cleaned up the existing installation. This program fixed corrupted registries and also removed the program from Control Panel programs list.
