I have Java problem...need help!

When I try to install Java or Uninstall it using Start -> Control Panel -> Add/Remove Program

It always no matter how much i try to install/uninstall always brings me to this window

That screenshot is on croatian so i will translate it to you.

Features you are trying to use is on network resource that is not available.

Click "Ok" to try again or enter alternative way to folder which contains an installation package 'jre1.7.0_11-c.msi' in a frame below.

My question is what to do here?

First, attempt to uninstall all Java from the Control Panel-Add/Remove Programs.. Once that's done, download, unzip, then install and use the Java Ra program to uninstall everything that's left..

If you still have remnants, then use the freeware version of Revo Uninstaller from the link below.. Install and run Revo, then select ONLY the Java items listed and let the program remove them.

Click on the link to Oracle's Java below, select the box to "Accept License Agreement", then click on the download link to the OFFLINE version for "Windows x86 Offline". At the current moment, the most current version of the installer will have a file name "jre-7u17-windows-i586.exe" . (If you're using a 64 bit version of Windows, also download the OFFLINE installer for the 64 bit version also, then install BOTH because the computer has a 64 bit and 32 bit version of Internet Explorer.) When the file is downloaded to your desktop, then exit all your browsers and double click on the file to install it.

Hope this helps.
