This is what you need to load on to your computer: jre-8u151-windows-i586.exe from this page: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/ja...s-2133155.html

    i586 (Intel talk) = x86 (Microsoft talk) = 32 bit

    If you want the 64 bit run time also, down load: jre-8u151-windows-x64.exe To use any 64 bit software your computer must have the 64 bit version of windows on it. But 32 bit software will generally run on 64 bit windows. (or 32 bit windows)

    Since Microsoft and Oracle really don't like each other, Microsoft likes to make it confusing to load Oracle software by putting up screens asking you about 10 times if you really want to load the software. Just keep answering yes till you are done.
    A far more detailed answer than I bothered to type
