Hey there, recently got my hands on a copy of "Head First Java 2nd Edition" the books told me to install the JDK, so I went to oracles webpage and got the JDK version 8, however when I click on the installer, nothing happens the installation window does not appear.
Could anyone point me in the right direction here?


Have a great day Fustyv.

Welcome to the Ranch

Please supply more information, then we can help better. We need to know:-

    Hey sorry for the lack of reply and missing information.

    I found out that I could not install anything at all, so I suspect a virus of some sort.
    I did a factory wipe of the PC and that seemed to solved the problem, thank you a ton for the reply through!

    A pleasure to help and sorry you have had other trouble with your computer. Have you managed to get Java® running yet?

    Yes, the installation of java went smooth after the reset, and I began learning Java
