Java JRE 8

Oracle released Java SE Runtime Environment 8 for Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2008.

The minimum memory requirements is 128 MB and require at minimum a Pentium 2 266 MHz processor. For Linux and Mac OS X, see Oracle JDK 8 and JRE 8 Certified System Configurations.
 
Java Version 8 is not compatible with Windows XP.

In the event you have software installed that requires Java, based on past history with Oracle Java version updates, it is recommended that you uninstall JRE 7 prior to updating.

Notes:
1. Java and JavaScript are not the same thing.
2. Most people don't need Java.

How do I uninstall Java on my Windows computer?
