    Can't delete "Java" Preference Pane
    Ok, so a while ago I installed Java 7 but decided that I didn't need it and it would be best to stick with Java 6. So, I deleted the JDK and also made sure that there was only java 6 by checking the Java Preferences. But not, I can't delete the Java preference pane in System Preferences. Every time I right click and click remove "Java" preference pane it says "The “JavaControlPanel” preferences pane could not be removed because an error occurred." Please help.

    Maybe you have already tried this...
    This way you can disable Java systemwide.
    Be careful though, you may inadvertently need it, even though you claim you don't.

    -Open the Applications folder and then open the Utilities folder.
    -Launch the “Java Preferences” application.
    -Uncheck the box next to “Enable applet plug-in and Web Start applications”.
    -Uncheck all the boxes next to “Java SE #” in the list below.

    Did you follow the Java 7 uninstallation instructions provided by Oracle (here)?
