Why is it that I have Java 8 172, and the newest one at their site is 171?  The never ending world of software garbage!

A long time has now passed since I had any Java on my personal computers (laptops), but you should be able to find the java you need at the page or site:   http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html

 

If you want the "jre" for a Windows machine, and if that "Java SE 8u171"  is what you want, then look at the button on the right side labeled  "JRE, download".  This will bring another page up,  http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jre8-downloads-2133155.html

 

Now, pick the appropriate installer you want, and download it to your desktop or whatever location is convenient.  I always prefered to offline installer for Windows 32-bit, because that was the machines on which I used java runtime environment.  This would be as labeled "Windows x86 offline".  There is a file name shown for it.

 

Other forum members will confirm or re-instruct however is needed; but uninstall your current jre, restart your computer, run the new offline installer that you just downloaded, (maybe need to use Run As Administrator), then restart computer again.  Upon finish of restart, machine should be ready.

Thanks, I'll need to review this closer when I get time.
