    Pc wont install Java


    Hello,


    I'm writing this thread because im having trouble with installing Java, though, i hope that i had opened the correct forum to discuss this issue in.

    My pc mentioned that my java version is too old and that i need to download and install the latest version, but when i do. it reports an error of being unable to download it. Will appreciate your help.

    Here is what it said,
    unable to download Http://javadl-esd-secure.oracle.com/...7.0_67-b01.xml for installion.

    P.S. it won't let me take a screen shot.

    Thanks in advance.
