Uninstalling Java Versions

Need to uninstall Java on a series of machines?  Either because, you need to do a fresh install, or updates are failing?  Or maybe your client is a public school system that has a mandate to remove all JRE 6 versions because of security issues?  …yeah that’s the one.

Remove JRE 6

That’s the script that went into my package that I recently finished running on about 15,000 systems or so.  If you’d like to remove them all, you can do that too.
