    The OP claimed that Java wasn't installed. The request to ascertain if those items were on the machine was to verify that condition. Reinstalling the JRE components has nothing to do with those components, since they're installed by the OS and not any Java update, whether from Apple or Oracle. As before, just mucks things up.

    it doesn't muck things up; it simply requests clarification and speeds things along. you suggested an approach to take if the OP discovered those components were not in the expected location, but you said nothing about what she should do if she found they were there (as i did, while continuing to experience the exact problem the OP described in her original post). i simply asked you for a solution to the other possibility, the one you hadn't addressed, since it was the situation i'd found on my own machine while still experiencing the OP's problem.

     

    having both of those situations addressd - that is, what to do in the case of the presence and the absence of those components - instead of just one would allow the OP, and others with the same problem, to take action regardless of whether they found those components present, instead of finding those components present and having to come back here and ask the very question i asked before they could proceed.

    Then, boot into recovery mode, restore the OS, restart, and try installing Java 6 again. BTW, don't install Java 7 until you resolve the Java 6 issue.

    i see - thanks for the explanation (and sorry it wasn't as simple for you as it was for me). hopefully with baltwo's guidance you'll have the issue resolved in not much more time.

     

    best of luck.

    Shortly before Thanksgiving, I spent 5 hours on the phone with 'support'.  I did all of these steps and nothing works.  The blip is down in the corner of my screen and I just continue to ignore it.  I have the exact issue that Helene L has!!!  All this happened after I loaded OS X lion

    DLing anything via WiFi is the slowest method, Although http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4718 describes the process, it's scant on details using an ethernet connection, but apparently, you first connect via WiFi, then switch to ethernet. All I can suggest is that you contact Apple's Express Lane and let them sort out this nonsense for you. My machine isn't capable of using it.
