Specs: Windows XP
Recently i downloaded a software which requires java JDK & so i downloaded it.

When i start the setup i can see the process in task manager but sfter 5-10 seconds it disappears
and setup is not starting & also its not giving any error.

I thought the setup may be damaged and so i downloaded it again from the java website but still installer not starting

I have 32bit windows Xp and so i downloaded this file jdk-7u5-windows-i586.exe

NOTE that sometimes the resident module(s) of anti-malware programs - a part that runs all the time scanning for suspicious activity - will interfere with the proper installation of third party software, or major Microsoft updates that cannot be installed automatically by Automatic Update, the software will not install properly, and you may get no indication of that at all while installing the software.
To avoid that possibilty, you should always DISABLE the resident module(s) of anti-malware programs, BEFORE you install third party software (software other than most Microsoft Updates, etc., that did not come with Windows ), especially when it's a major or complicated software package.
E.g. if you are using the free or paid version of AVG, you should disable the Resident Shield in AVG's 's settings in Windows (in AVG 2012 that's done under the title AntiVirus).

If you don't know how to do that, tell us which anti-malware software you are using.
When you are sure the software has installed correctly, re-enable the resident module(s).

Most malware these days is NOT a virus - it's something else.
Modern "anti-virus" programs also protect you from other types of malware - e.g. trojans, root kits, in some cases spyware as well, and/or the software may include a software firewall as well.

If you do not have any third party "anti-virus" programs installed, if you use the internet, your computer WILL be infected with something eventually.

It may already be infected !

"anti-malware" program is a generic term I use for anything that trys to prevent your computer from being affected by any malicious software, or by any malicious people who may try to access your computer without youir permssion such as hackers.
"anti-virus" programs, anti-spyware programs, third party software firewalls, etc. , etc. .

Other than that,
- check the system requiremnts for installing the Java version.
E.g. it may require that Windows has had SP3 updates installed in it - if you don't have those installed, you can't install it.

- the Java download you got may be corrupted.
- delete the installation file and download it again.
- uninstall any entry for the Java software in Control Panel - Classic view- Add or Remove Programs
- Restart Windows
- try installing the Java software again

"When i start the setup i can see the process in task manager but sfter 5-10 seconds it disappears
and setup is not starting & also its not giving any error."

Apparently this is the probable situation....

When you execute (double click on) the installation download, a short time after that a window pops up and there is a button labelled Install on it that you MUST click on.

It sounds like you may NOT be seeing that window.

That window MAY have popped up BEHIND another window already on the screen.

Minimize or close the window of where the installtion download is and possibly other windows too, after you click on it to check for that.

Why do you want to install the JDK ?
You don't need that unless you're a programmer.

There is a much smaller download that installs Java in Windows for the use of games, etc..


There may be something wrong with your Windows installation.
There's several things you can try to fix Windows without losing the data already on the partition Windows was installed on if you have a Windows CD.
