I redownloaded the installer several time.

My problem is exactly like this guy:

Moreover, also like this guy I can't uninstall Java. I can't update java. I can't access bbm. Java icon doesn't show up on my task manager.

Also the most advance Java is 7.11 and this one is blocked by firefoex. Am I correct here?

JavaRa might help you in a situation like this:

JavaRa is an effective way to deploy, update and remove the Java Runtime Environment (JRE). Its most significant feature is the JRE Removal tool; which forcibly deletes files, directories and registry keys associated with the JRE. This can assist in repairing or removing Java when other methods fail.

On, on the left, click on the link that says "Error Messages". Find and click on the link that says "Download errors: java_sp.dll is corrupt, 1305, 2755, 1606". In the Solution, click on "download offline installer". There's a bug that corrupts Java updating online. So this little program from Java itself prevents that corruption from happening. Worked great for me and I didn't have to mess with my registry or install non-Java programs.
