Hello, i've been having this issue for quite some time and have also posted on another tech support forum.

Java simply refuses to install. Every time i start the java installer (making sure to download the right version, etc.) the installer won't run -- it starts, then after about 1 second it's process disappears.
I have used multiple tools (including JavaRa) to try and make sure no traces of my old java install (v1.6.0_17) remain on my computer.

Have multiple logs here:

I have went through great lengths to try and get java working.
I even manually extracted the java installer with 7zip and put it's contents into my program files (was unable to find the right registry keys, though)

I also googled some keywords from the jusched.log, and found these posts that may or may not have a similar problem to mine:

Java installation troubles - NoGripRacing Forums

Bluescreen and Java issues@PhilliePhan - Page 7 - Viruses, Spyware and other Nasties | DaniWeb

Bug ID: 6630380 files locked by DT causes MSI registry keys to be deleted during install

Any help with this would be immensely appreciated.

Hi there,

Download |MG| Windows Installer CleanUp Utility 7.2 Download

To run you may need to right click and go to Run as Administrator.

Install it, then you can find the program in program files.

Windows Installer Clean up

Run it from the folder, find all java entrys and remove them.

Retry the java install.

Thanks for your quick reply!

I did as you asked, the only java installation it found was 'Java 3D', which i removed with that.

I tried the 'chromeinstall.exe' java installer, it downloads the files, but then exits and windows gives me a 'This program might not have installed correctly' prompt.
Then I tried 'Reinstall using recommended settings', but the installer exists again, but no prompt this time.

Hi, Java problems are very difficult (sometimes a reinstall is needed) go to this site and download the earlier version ( Java Runtime Environment 1.6.0.15) then if it installs open control panel double click the Java Icon and select update.. see if it allows the latest version to install.. it is a good idea to remove previous versions after you update. If no go we have a script that has worked for some.

Old Version of Java Runtime Environment 1.6.0.15 Download - OldApps.com

I started the installer, it asked for admin permission, hit yes.
But then apparently the process disappeared again...

Would manually creating a registry key (assuming that is one) allow me to start the installer?
