I know I posted a couple months ago on this and tried the solution again this morning; however, I'm still not getting the 64-bit version. I'm running windows 7 home premium and went back to my post from January when Java wouldn't update when it said it needed updating. I could download the 32 bit but not the 64 bit Java.
Also, even though both times I've uninstalled Java totally before loading when it comes to the auto updates or any updates it just won't update. Any suggestions?
