This thread will always contain download details of the latest Java version.

Always make sure that your Java Runtime Environment is up to date
Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system.

For Vista, Win7/ Win8/ Win10 systems
  • Download the latest version of  Java Runtime Environment  SE 9.0.4 and save it to your desktop.
  • Scroll down to where it says "Java  SE 9.0.4".
  • Click the "Download JRE" button.
  • Accept the license agreement.
  • select 'Windows x86'offline or 'Windows x64'offline (depending on whether you are running a 32 or 64 bit system) from the list.
  • Save the file to your desktop.
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel, double-click on Add/Remove Programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check (highlight) any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java versions.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Then from your desktop double-click on downloaded icon to install the newest version.

[note]Apparently Oracle has decided to eliminate support for x86 ( 32bit ) Java forever.
They somehow finished, compiled, digitally signed, and published the Java 9 binaries by accident.
The binaries still work.
If you have Java 9, you have it, and it will still work.
If you don't have Java 9, well, you'll have to get creative.[/note]

For Win XP systems
Please download the latest version for your system... which is
Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 7 Update 65

If you have the version: Java Runtime Enviroinment (JRE) 6 update 10  or later installed.... you will no longer have to uninstall the previous version before installing the latest one. (as long as there's only one Java version to remove)

If you have Java Runtime Enviroinment (JRE) 6 update 7 or earlier.... you will still need to remove the older versions.

The Java Quick Starter (JQS.exe) adds a service to improve the initial startup time of Java applets and applications.
To disable the JQS service if you don't want to use it,
go to Start >> Control Panel >> Java >> Advanced >> Miscellaneous and uncheck the box for Java Quick Starter. Click OK and reboot your computer.
