Over the last couple of months, I've received several notifications about a Java (not JavaScript!!) update being available for my Win7 Pro but, when I click on the notification, I quickly get told that the Update could not be installed.

If I go to Start->Control Panel->Java (32bit) Control Panel and select "About" on the General tab, it shows "Version 8 Update 161 (build 1.8.0_161-b12)

If I then select the "Update" tab and click the "Update Now" button, I told there is a Java Update Available (Java 8 Update 181) but, when I then click the "Update >" button, I rapidly get a "Error - Java Update" window which tells me "Failed to download required installation files".

Again .... and again ... and again!!

Is it just me?? Is there a problem with my Win7 system??

Anyone got a valid suggestion??

Do we really need java on our pc's ?

Some probably do need it.

Third if we are only counting actual programming languages.


I would need it if I wanted to use the LibreOffice database application.

I just took the AARP defensive driving course on line and Java was required. No big deal. Firefox asked if I should use it and I said yes and all worked fine.

I recall update problem and think I had to delete all traces and reload it. Also did something to avoid persistent request for update.
