Hi, long time no see  =)

 

Alright, I was trying to check if my computer can run certain game(System Requirements Lab a.k.a. Can You Run It)

but it is failing to detect java. Few days ago, I remeber that I was check other game for sure.

 

But all in sudden, it doesn't work at all. I can't figure out what caused this problem.

When I try to uninstall JAVA, there is no program in uninstall list.

Also, running online JAVA uninstaller provided by ORACLE, no hope.

Yellow bar show up saying you need to run java, run it or not shows up but when i clik

run it, nothing happens.

 

Reinstalling program doesn't work too(both offline version and online download version).

When I click install button msg with yellow exclamation mark shows up saying

"This software has already been installed on your computer. Would you like to reinstall it?"

 

Click Yes leads to another msg with red X mark saying

"This action is only valid for products that are currently installed."

 

Wat?? contradiction between first and second msg!

 

Any solution for this?

Sorry that I wasn't able to upload picture due to attachment size limit.

Here's where to get Java, and check if you have it, or have the correct version, and in case of need, get rid of old versions :

 

http://www.java.com/en/

 

You will see, under the big 'Free Java download' button a smaller 'button' saying 'Do I have Java ?'. Click on this and follow the instructions and you will find which, if any, version you have and if you need the download.

I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !

Hi -

Very similar to what Chris Cosgrove has posted -

You can verify the version of Java installed, http://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp?detect=jre

 

Use his link to download a new version or run this program for us to detect versions >>

Download Security Check by Screen317
* Save it to your Desktop.
* Double-click SecurityCheck.exe
* Follow the onscreen instructions inside the black box.
* A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.
Note: If any security program requests permission to access the Internet, allow it to do so.

 

Regards -

Thank you guys for the reply

But when I click the link that you provided(for verification of the version of JAVA)

they say (chrome) this require JAVA to run with the yellow bar on the top of my browser.

So, I downloaded installation file and ran it but these msg shows up.

 

 

 

///Content of that program.

 
 Results of screen317's Security Check version 0.99.72  
 Windows 7 Service Pack 1 x86 (UAC is disabled!)  
``````````````Antivirus/Firewall Check:`````````````` 
 Windows Firewall Enabled!

 WMI entry may not exist for antivirus; attempting automatic update. 
`````````Anti-malware/Other Utilities Check:````````` 
 Java version out of Date!

Hm...This is so brief that I can see it's out of date.

But I need to figure out how do uninstall JAVA first.(Doesn't show up in uninstall list. Can't even run program related with JAVA)

Any solution?

Security Check is a brief program, but gives us a lot of information.

 

Do not use Chrome - Use Internet Explorer -
Chrome is an Add-on program only, while Internet Explorer is M/soft default browser.
Java version out of Date!
You have had Java installed at one time so we will clean all traces we can find -
Clean out any Existing Java (follow directions)  and use the links above to install Version 7 Update 25.

 

Do not accept any Add-ons or Extras included with a Java download -
 

Thank You -

Eh..Sorry to say but I don't see anything related with JAVA in uninstall list(No J2SE, JAVA2, JAVA SE, JAVA Runtime Environment)

 

When I try to use automatic uninstaller provided by ORACLE in website, nothing shows up except X mark with frame

 

But I can't even install(or reinstall it/since I do not know if I have JAVA in my computer)

Saying "This software has already been installed on your computer. Would you like to reinstall it?"

 

when i click yes another msg shows up saying 

 

"This action is only valid for products that are currently installed."

As Noknojon said, just for this once forget Chrome, forget Programs and Features.

 

Start Internet Explorer - if you don't have an icon for it on the taskbar or the desktop you can get to it through 'Start / All programs' - then type

 

http://www.java.com/en/

 

into the address bar and then take it from there.
