      Description

      Incorrect Google Desktop uninstall behavior in sponsor jre bundles
      Platform: Windows
      This are the steps to reproduce: on WinXP machine:

      - instal jre-6u1-fcs-bin-b199-windows-i586-16_nov_2006-s.exe
      - when Google menu will come, also check Google Desktop (GD) - (unchecked by default)
      - after installation completed you can see both Google Tolbar (GT) and GD on the machine
      - now using windows Control Panel try to uninstall GD
      - it is immediately asking you for reboot!!!!! - to complete uninstall, (in my first attempt it reboted even without any dialog) - push "Yes"
      - but after reboot GD is still there !!!!!
      - try to uninstall it again, now new dialog coming: "Do you really want to remove GD.......", say "yes", but uncheck "Keep indexes in case I want to install GD again later"
      - now GD removed from the machine
      - install jre-6u1-fcs-bin-b199-windows-i586-16_nov_2006-s.exe again with checked GD
      - but now GD is not installed !!!!!!

      If you try to install Google Desktop as a single application, everything working fine
