JRE downloads to the last second and then stops. Tried three different download sites but the same thing happens.

Need more info Basil

1. What is your operating system?
2. 32 bit or 64 bit?
3. Where are you trying to download from?
4. Are you trying download the offline or online version?
5. Are you positive that is is the correct version for "windows" that you are downloading? The list of options on the oracle/java site is long and it is very easy to get confused
6. Are you signing the agreement?
7. What happens when the download stops? Any error messages? Are you sure that it didn't download completely and is hiding somewhere on your computer?

Same here

Same happened here. Had something like 40k remaining. I let it sit there for 2 or 3 minutes, and download completed. I have had this happen before on rare occasions, but have no idea why it happens.

Got It !!!

Tried through the site roddy gave once again -no go. I finally downloaded the update through JRE in the control panel. Thanks for the input roddy. And thanks radean for your "you are not alone" message.

This is fairly common Basil with

the java updates for a couple of days after the update has been released. I think their servers just get overloaded.
