I've been searching high and low for someone who can help me.
I've been trying for a month. A month. to install Java on my new PC to no avail. No tech support forum can seem to help me.
It all started while playing tekkit one day. I kept running out of memory (using the 32-bit JRE 7 u45) so I decided to install the 64-bit version. I uninstalled the 32-bit version first, for some reason, and downloaded the 64 bit runtime. In the installer, I go through all the normal screens until the installation progress bar appears. Then, it just sits there. No progress is made. No CPU is used by the installer, or any of its dependencies.
The installer will stay like this for hours, days, and in one case a whole week without doing anything at all. I've tried installing older versions, the 32-bit version, even Java 6 and none of them will install. UAC is disabled, I've run regedit, CCleaner, and any other "fix-it" program there is. It's getting to the point where I may just have to wipe my hard drives and start over.
I have several applications that require java, so this is an absolute necessity. Please, please, someone have the answer.
Here are my system specs:
-AsRock z77 Extreme3
-Samsung 840 pro SSD
-WD Caviar Black 1tb
