Hey there,

I've been trying unsuccessfully for months trying to update JAVA here :https://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp
It verifies the version of Java on my PC fine but when I click the download button it does nothing.

Firefox just says "waiting for Java.com" and after 5 minutes it returns a page not found error.

All other websites load fine so I don't think its an issue on the ISP's part.

Can anyone help me out?

Thank you.

FYI: My Current Java version = version 7 update 9

Unless websites you visit actually use Java, you don't need it. Most sites don't. Uninstall it. Java is a security risk anyway.

Hey Frank,

Thanks for replying.

How would you recommend uninstalling Java completely if thats what you recommend?

Thank you.

Just like you would any other program. Through Add-Remove Programs in the Control Panel.

I use Revo Uninstaller to uninstall most programs. I don't have Java on my system so I don't know if Revo works for that.

Revo Uninstaller is what I've always used to uninstall Java. Never caused a problem.

Hi -

There are times when you need to Disable (not remove) your Antivirus or Firewall for some downloads
Information on A/V control (temp disable) HERE if needed

 

If you still have a problem installing Java or other programs, download them to desktop and install from there -

Check your Java version here: http://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp
Which Download should I choose? http://javadl.sun.com/webapps/download/AutoDL?BundleId=75259 < Offline install.


Choose Save to Desktop and install it from there.

Choose the Online download for the fastest install experience, but use offline if you have problems -
Choose the Offline download if you will be installing on a machine without an internet connection, or you are having problems with the Online install.

 

Instructions for Remove older versions of Java -

 

Just a bit of info for you if you have problems next time -

 

Good Luck -
