It is a serious mistake trying to work inside the bin folder. Progam Files is not for you to put your own work in. It is also a mistake to set your own classpath, even though some books tell you to. You can delete that classpath entirely and suffer no problems. Your %JAVA_HOME% variable should not end in bin. You can either set a JAVA_HOME which ends in jdk1.7.0_03 or similar, or put the whole path in the path variable entry. If you have bin in both, the computer will try to find a bin/bin folder which you haven’t got.
