    I uninstalled old JRE and tried to reinstall. It will download the installer but then it never starts. I have tried cleaning registry using ccleaner. I have tried downloading off line version but I get an errer about datacab1 may be corrupt. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Actually you should be able to install multiple version of JRE on your PC so older version is probably not the issue.
    Are you able to install other programs? Also, If you have another PC, can you download on that PC and move the file using the usb drive? Another thing to try would be try older version of JRE. Make sure you reboot before you try any of these.

    Download the installer and save it to your hard drive and then run it from there.

    guys thanks for the help. That was easy. I was able to download an earlier version of java and then update.

    Thanks!
