I recently had to get my computer rebooted using a fake operating system of XP due to a virus. But i cant get Java anymore! I cant validate my system as it requires that do proceed with the download. Is there anyway i can get it...?

It's a better idea to call MS support instead of using pirated software.

Just burn a copy of Java on a cd from a different computer.

Huh? You should be downloading the Java JRE from Sun, not Microsoft. Why do you need to validate the OS to install Java? Maybe i'm completely missing something.
