It seems I can't install because I have a corrupt file. This is what it said : download file c:documents and settingsownerapplicationdatasunjavajre1.7.0_40-c.msi is corrupt. Is java necessary to run certain things or can I do without it or possibly try something else.

Thanks

I tried installing it again from the location you told me, and it wouldn't, same message came up as before. Thanks for your help, guess I'll just have to do without it. Is there anyway to correct a corrupt file?

I think the uninstaller provided by Oracle will take out more files than the windows uninstaller. Have you used the Oracle uninstaller?
