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??

Try manually download and install:



Thanks, EnDeeGee, I think I've downloaded Java Version from that site previously, but now that site is falling under a problem that I've mentioned elsewhere (possible in the SeaMonkey group) where, when I click on a download link, I can see activity on my Wireless Broadband connection thingee but the "Downloaded File" does not get written anywhere!! ;-(

Thanks for your suggestion. ;-)

Try this site:
