On the java list there's been a discussion on how to move forward when
Oracle starts charging for java in January. I've pretty well got that
handled, but now I have another issue.

I uninstalled Oracle java on my desktop. After doing so, I noticed these
folders still existed:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Oracle
C:\ProgramData\Oracle

so I deleted them. (In both cases the only subfolder was \Java.)

I also removed both of the above from the path environment variable.

After that, my desktop would not reboot stating there was either a hardware
or software problem. Actually had to use the restore point from before
uninstalling Oracle java. I did all this yesterday on a spare desktop with
no issue.

Since then I have uninstalled Oracle java again, have ACS using open source
java, updated the path environment variable, added JAVA_HOME and all seems
to be working fine.

I'd still like to delete those folders mentioned earlier because I see no
need for them. Any ideas why doing so would make my system unbootable? I
don't see anything in msconfig that looks related.

Thanks.
