    Hello SdSquid, Check your anti-virus settings to make sure that it is not blocking the Java(TM) SE Binary files. Kaspersky AV is known to do this kind of issue, it may be the same with your AV. Hope I have helped you

    In that case open the Control Panel and click on Windows Update then on the left hand side of the window click on "View update History" and post a pic of it here.

    I'm not seeing anything that could have caused an issue with Java, have you tried installing the 64-bit version?

    Before proceeding to download the 64-bit run this tool to see if there is an old version java that didn't get removed which could just be causing your issue.

    Tool link: Java Uninstall Tool

    64 bit java: http://javadl.sun.com/webapps/downlo...BundleId=80814

    Hope your issue gets resolved soon. If not, just reply saying that this didn't work and just wait for someone who is more experienced to see what they have to say on the matter.
