Hi,

From where are you downloading Java? Try the official Java site if you haven't already:

java.com: Java + You

Are you downloading (and trying to run) the offline or online setup file? (If you just click the big red 'Download' button, it'll send you the offline installer which downloads more components after you launch it to install them.)

The "unknown publisher" warning isn't really so unusual. You should be able to just allow the installer to run anyway. Is that what you're not able to do?

I thought you were getting the "unknown publisher" message at the start of the installation, not near the end. Could you give us the exact, full text of that error?

Have you actually tried downloading the offline installer yet?
