    Cannot Download Java! Please Help.


    I was looking at all my installed programs on my computer. I noticed that Java is not on the list, so that means it's not installed yet.

    So I went to Java.com to download it. However, when I clicked "Agree and Start Free Download", Google Chrome (the web browser I was using) shows a fail page. Then I tried all the other web browsers installed on my computer, i.e. Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox and Opera. Unfortunately, they all showed fail pages as well.

    Internet Explorer says "This page can't be displayed", Safari says "Safari can't open the page" with an error code of kCFErrorDomainWinSock:10054, Firefox says "The connection was reset", Opera says "This webpage is not available", and Google Chrome says the same thing as Opera ("This webpage is not available") with a different layout of text.

    Please reply as soon as possible! I want this problem fixed soon so I can get Java installed on my computer.

    Try getting the 32 & 64 bit Java here:

    Download Java Runtime Environment 1.7.0.40 (32-bit) - FileHippo.com

    That's where I got mine.
