Unexpected installing additional components dialog pops up as kernel JRE is uninstalled

        Description

        In a general software removal practice, it is unexpected that additional components of that software are needed/installed during its un-installation step. 6u10 kernel jre removal displays this unexpected behaviour. Intuitively, it really confuses users.

        Tested OS: x86-Windows Vista-Business(sp1)
                           x86- Windows XP-pro(sp3)

              Kernel jre: jre-6u10-rc2-windows-i586-p-iftw-k.exe (from java.sun.com)


        Steps to reproduce:
        ------------------
        1) Uninstall all JDK/JRE on the test system
        2) Install the kernel jre [jre-6u10-rc2-windows-i586-p-iftw-k.exe (from java.sun.com)]
        3) As the kernel jre successfully installed, click 'Close' button in the 'Java Setup- Complete' windows.
        4) Reboot the machine
        5) At this point, Kernel jre is running on the system (not client jre)
        6) Uninstall the 6u10 jre (which is the kernel jre) from the Windows control panel

        If you see the "Installing Additional Components" dialog pops up during the uninstalling step, then the problem is reproducible (see the attached screenshot for the problem demonstration.

        It looks very strange, especially in the case users have a slow network connection, they will see this "Installing Additional Components" dialog and its progress bar much longer and wonder what is happening.
