Unable to uninstall jruby (windows): jvm could not start

I've got this version on jruby in Windows 10:


jruby 1.7.13 (1.9.3p392) 2014-06-24 43f133c on Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 1.7.0_80-b15 [Windows 8-x86]


and when I try to uninstall it from Control Panel I keep on getting the error:


The JVM could not be started. The maximum heap size (-Xmx) might be too large or an antivirus or firewall tool could block the execution.


Any idea what I could try to delete this installation? I tried reinstalling the .exe file, to see if it had an option to remove/repair, but nothing, it just reinstalled it and I still have the problem.

Answer

No commands seem to work for me, at the end I had to do it through a specific software design for this kind of issues: http://www.perfectuninstaller.com/
