        Description

        The AddRemove programs entries for Java Web Start applications are put in the registry all under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.

        This means an entry put in for one user is there for all to delete.
        This also means a non administrator who runs a Java Web Start app cannot remove it thru Add/Remove Programs.

        We should use HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE only is app is in the system cache. otherwise, use HKEY_CURRENT_USER
