    HI There

    Windows 8 - cannot install java on ie or chrome. tried removing old version, still no go. I go to download it, I run or save (makes no diff doesn't work) and then it asks me to allow and then nothing and it stays in my downloads and I can't delete it as its still open.

    Same happens when I try and run or download the windows upgrade assistant. Norton 360 checks it, I accept it and then nothing.

    ideas??

    Thankyou!

    Try disabling Norton, reboot and run it again.

    Not necessarily, you may have make exception rules for the programs in question or disable it every time you need to update. I don't like Norton myself and don't recommend it though. For windows 8 I use BitDefender total security and it's yet to cause me a problem. If your Norton subscription is close to being done then by all means I would switch over to either BitDefender Total Security Or BitDefender Internet security. If you decide to switch, post back and I will shoot you some info so you can get a year for around $15 instead of $60

    No problem, I'm glad I can help:) Here is the info:

    Here is a deal from ebay for a full one year BitDefender Internet Security $13.50, normal price is $49.95. Works the same.

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/150950461061?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649

    9 times out of 10 if you ask the seller to send you the product key before they ship it so you can install it right away they will. After you recieve your product code go here and download the Internet security 2013 and use your product code when asked.
