problem installing java

Hi all, im new to the site but you all look like you know what your doing so I've decided to ask my question here

Basically ive just installed windows 7 64bit

im trying to download java.. so i go on the site and click to download.

The message comes up asking if i should allow, i say yes.

installation begins, then starts to install but then vanishes !

i also notice when i do this, the cpu usage moniter on the desktop goes very high and stays high untill i restart the computer ??

How can i install java please help!

Many thanks,

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

If Java is installed and shows up in Programs and features, then uninstall it. Download the latest 6u18, (Windows), agree to the terms, and choose the offline installation. Save it, close your browser/s, and see if it will install.

If you want both 32 and 64 bit java, then download both the one under (Windows) and the one under (Windowsx64)

You really only need the 32 bit one if you use just 32 bit browsers, but if you use both 32 and 64 bit browsers, you can install both. Just install the 64 bit one first, then the 32 bit one, or re install the 32 bit one over the 64 bit one if both are already installed, because of a specific known issue with both Javas installed.

Hi all, I'll be installing both Firefox and Chrome in Windows 7 64bit (I use both). Do I have to install BOTH 32 and 64bit versions of Java and Flash to support FF (32 bit browser) and Chrome (64bit), or will installing the 64 bit versions suffice? Thanks
