    Alright I have a new problem now. I bought it today, and now it is giving me a loading update news on the launcher and it cannot connect to minecraft.net.

    What does it say exactly? Does it show you 1 line of code there where the news normally is? If so, that means
    A) your internet is out (obviously not in this case)
    B) the minecraft news site is down (it isn't right now),
    Or
    C) mine craft is being blocked, either by an AV or a firewall. This is most likely.
    Do you have multiple versions of java on your PC? (I have 8 versions lol).

    I shut off my firewall in suspicion. I checked to see the same thing with the site. I've tried the IPv6 to IPv4 method too. Nothing.

    Hmm... On my computer (64 bit win 7), when I had a problem with java (the 32 bit version of it), I just had to switch to the 64 bit version of java to get it working. What you can do (without too much lag), is use a virtual machine (Google virtual box), and run mc in that. Make sure the os you use is 64 bit (so most versions of vista or win 7 would work). Besides that we are running into many dead ends :/.
    We will get mc to run on your computer though!

    I don't think running 64 bit on a 32 bit will work? But if it does, I will be impressed since I did uninstall and reinstall java.

    It won't work. That is why you need to get a VM.

    Alright, I've come to the conclusion that it is most likely my internet connection that is not allowing me to do this sort of thing. Sometimes, even when I'm connected, like downloading Java online, it says that I'm not allowed to download online with my connection. I have a WPA key set for reasons, and ever since I've done this my whole family has had connection problems. But my router is hooked up to this computer so I don't see how it's an issue.

    That was kind of confusing, so what I got out of that was that your internet is messed up. If that is the case, there isn't much I can do for you, and you have to contact your ISP about it.
    *If any of my posts helped you, a like would be appreciated (Note I am not begging for likes to all you mods out there :wink:)

    The Internet connects fine. I'm able to do anything. Except OTA downloading. I cannot download java online. I have to do it offline.
    I'd be liking all these posts but I'm banned for 3 months for liking 5 posts on my profile.

    Well, I think the best I could do now is do teamviewer or skype and try a few different things, and see for myself what it is doing.
