Tested build : 6u10 b27 PIT
Tested OS : Win Vista

Steps to reproduce:
1. install kernel bundle
2. once the installation is completed, try to uninstall the jre
"Java Setup - Close Applications" dialog popsup asking to close "java.exe" with retry and cancel buttons

On XP, it is taking a long to to uninstall jre (when i checked the java process list, there was a process which merges rt.jar). It looks like it uninstall wizard is waiting to get that process to be completed.

EVALUATION This CR was actually brought about through triage of 6718336 (see also). The issue was that when the kernel installer is run, then the user immediately (or immediately after reboot) runs the JRE uninstaller, our FilesInUse dialog was displaying the kernel downloader process. We fixed that issue by moving the FilesInUse action further down the installer sequence so that the processes that shut down the kernel downloader could be called before FilesInUse was invoked. There is now the issue (this CR) that a downloader dialog is invoked that should not be. This is either a kernel issue, or an issue with one of the calls that shutdown the kernel during uninstall. Changed the synopsis accordingly.
