I have a new Dell Inspiron 660 with Windows 7. I have downloaded Java numerous times using the three standard browsers and it will not take/work.

I know Java isn't the best program in the world to have on a computer, but I use it for playing games (which is my primary "entertainment" use of the computer). It is frustrating for this not to work.

Any guesses on what I should do? I've tried going into Internet Options and adjusting things there, but that didn't help.
