Help! Cant get Java!

  1. Aug 16, 2007 #1
    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.

    I do download it from sun but when you download it it then comes up and tells me that my computer hasnt got a validated xp on it so it cant continue with the download.
