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??

It's really old, but I find that javara is still functional and useful on my Win10 system.  See: https://singularlabs.com/software/javara/

Unfortunately, in my case (win10 x64 bit) JavaRa is not operational any longer.
– Cleaning logs and temporary files created by JRE
– Performing a clean uninstall of JRE
are the features I especially miss.
Does anybody know if Iobit Uninstaller is comparably effective?

I have a JavaUninstallTool.exe saved in my Downloads folder on Windows 10. Version


Thanks for pointing me to this page and the Java Uninstall tool. When it reads "You can uninstall older versions of Java manually in the same way as you would uninstall any other software from your Windows computer", it most probably answers my initial question.
