Error in downloading Java - Error: Expected ")"

User_MGYVY Member Posts: 1 Green Ribbon

I uninstalled java then went to and clicked the link to install current version but I keep getting a Script Error. It says:

Line: 1

Char: 1

Error: Expected ")"

Code: 0


Do you want to continue using scripts on this page? (Y/N option)

I tried restarting my computer, turning off my firewall, downloading the offline version, tried the online version, both 32 bit and 64 bit versions, and an older version of Java but every time I still get the same error.

EDIT: Even though I only have 1 account on this computer I made a second account, gave it admin rights then logged into it and downloaded java from the website and it worked first try. Then went back to my main account and deleted the second account. No idea why this worked though.
