    Try http://raproducts.org/ [Broken]

    But do "kill jqs.exe" in command prompt first and try then (This maybe running in the background).

    Alt+Ctrl+Del

    Go the processes, and find if you have any java processes running. Just kill them including jqs.exe. And try installing java. Hopefully that would work.

    I don't see any java related programs in it.

    I can't be more helpful if JavaRa doesn't solve it.

    Re: Java

    What architecture are you trying to install Java on? Are you trying to get the 64-bit JRE/JDK running? I had no luck with that, and I had to go back to using the 32-bit versions.

    Re: Java

    Right click on "Computer" on your desktop. A system window should open. What does it say under "System type"?

    Then copy and paste the file name of the Java installer you are using. Or paste the link to the download page of the installer you are using.

    Re: Java

    The Java.com site has this explanation of the error code that I'm guessing that you visited.

    http://www.java.com/en/download/help/error_25099.xml" [Broken]

    BTW, which version are you trying to install? The developers in our office (including myself) have tried installing the version 6 JDK and we had so many issues with it, that we decided to wait until Sun resolves some of the problems. Unless you really need it for something specific, I would try installing the latest Java 5 version.

    Re: Java

    It isn't necessary to delete browsers to solve this problem. Java does have a tendancy to leave older versions of itself on the computer - sometimes in the directories for the browsers. However, I still think that the current problem is due more to the version of Java than anything else.

    Re: Java

    To install a jre all you need is the jar files on your computer and PATH and CLASSPATH environment variables should point to the right places.
