Windows 7: Problems with Java JRE and Google Chrome

Problems with Java JRE and Google Chrome

I have Windows 7 Professional 64bit on a Lenovo Thinkpad x120e laptop. Earlier today I tried to sync up Zotero with LibreOffice, and I got an error message telling me that the Java Runtime Environment wasn't installed. I've spent a good part of the day uninstalling and reinstalling the JRE, Google Chrome, and LibreOffice and rebooting my computer, but the problem has gotten worse. Now the Java website viewed through Chrome doesn't recognize that I have Java on my computer and Chrome won't uninstall (I get a dialogue box telling me that I need to close all chrome windows even though I have none open).

When I type %java -version in my command prompt it tells me that java 1.7.0_02 is installed for the 64-bit server.

So my question is, what can I do to get Java recognized by my browser? Also, I'm curious as to why I can't delete Chrome (I have in the past).

Thank you for any help.

Java JRE is required for chrome. The chrome link to java is the version you should install in order to get the plugins and all to set up correctly. Also, you should have chrome installed before installing java for chrome. You CAN run multiple java platforms on one machine. I have had this issue installing java from oracle and I always install 64 bit. Apparently chrome doesn't like 64 bit, but I reiterate: you can leave installed, whatever java version you have. Install the java chrome wants in addition and it should set up correctly. Always check chrome plugins (type "aboutlugins" into omnibox). If a java plugin is in there GOOD check that it is enabled.

Hopefully this helps get chrome to recognize java and work correctly. As for your "close all chrome windows" issue, I am sorry but that is a little over my head. I would try task manager, killing the process tree for any processes with chrome in the name. Because of this issue I would suggest uninstalling (once it lets you) and reinstalling chrome.
