I'm not the best at explaining things, so bare(bear?) with me!
Some months ago I installed Java, because it was needed to play Minecraft.
Java didn't seem to like me much. It gave me the fun little Blue Screen of Death.
Several times. I entered safe mode, uninstalled Java, all was well!
Nope. I decided that "maybe Java was acting nutty. I'll try it once more, and if it BSOD's me once again, I'll un-install it again."
I downloaded Java, and began the installation.
This is when things just was not looking good for me..
Error 1723 reared its ugly head.
Now, doing some sleuthing online, I discovered two things might have occurred:
1: Java's installation may have gone bad.
2: Windows Installer is out-dated.
1. I can't tell if Java's installation did go bad, due to Java being a cock and not working at all. Firefox, IE, Chrome, nothing registered that Java even existed. Which is why I tried installing it a second time. I had no way of knowing that it was there in the first place.
2. I cannot find a single Windows Installer update. At all. I've found installations, but each of them either tell me it's incompatible, or it is the valid install, but my machine is invalid. Yeah, I know, I couldn't entirely make heads or tails of it either.
And because the above is a cluster fuck of text, I'll attempt to make it easier...
No browser detects my current Java download.
Cannot uninstall current Java version.
Reason: Error 1723.
Google is no help to me, what-so-ever.
OS: Windows 7
Java: Java 6 Update 23
I'll supply more information as needed.

Never thought I would be forced to bump a thread.
Shameless self-bump. I don't give a damn if bumping is silly or not.
