Ok I've been trying to uninstall the 200+ java web start apps I've downloaded.. first I tried to uninstall it from Control panel but it didn't work. So then I started googling for a program uninstaller, but that didn't work either. In the end, I went to regedit.exe and started deleting the keys for the JWS applications, but when I restarted my computer they just reappear back there! Is there a way to uninstall them? They are lagging my system to death..

You need to run the uninstaller while the program is still on your computer. If you clear the downloads before you uninstall, it cant be removed without re downloading it.  i really hope I'm wrong and there is a better way but this is the only thing that has worked for me.

I use ccleaner to remove the uninstall keys that can't be removed.

Try this...

goto control panel
goto java control panel
under the general tab select view from the tempory internet files
you will see the show drop down menu
DELETE everything you can see on all menus from the java cache viewer
deleted applications
 i used the regedit too to get rid of all mine and ran msconfig to make sure nothing was there too.
i just restarted and mine are might want to alter your settings too on general tab
delete from the location you see in the location where kept box
and click the delete files ,applications and applets from the pop up diag box
hope that helps  Smiley
