    Sorry it confused you.

    Remove any listed Java from Programs and Features.

    Then, download and install the 64-bit version of Java.

    You may have to hunt for the 32-bit version in the Other Builds section on Java.com.

    Hi DragonMaster Jay -
    Why would I want to find the 32-bit version in the Other Builds section on Java.com if I want to install the 64-bit version? BTW, I cannot find the "Other Builds" section on Java.com.

    Am I supposed to modify my FF installed version or my IE installed version? How do I know which versions I am running?

    When I run the Verify Java Version on java.com, it gives me the message that "We are unable to verify if Java is currently installed and enabled in your browser." I *did* install the java version 7 update 11, 64-bit. I have disabled avast and comodo.

    Hi -
    I now know for sure that Java is not running, since an app I use will not run and it gives me a message to check my java installation.

    Hi -
    I installed the Java 32-bit (in addition to the 64-bit version that I installed earlier) and now my app works and the Check Java Version says it's installed correctly.

    Hi DragonMaster Jay -
    I guess that I don't need to do anything to my browsers. Am I done now?
