There is a new Java Update out now: Java 8 Update 111.

If your computer system's 64 bit then when you download the defaulted version from: http://www.java.com/en/ ....it doesn't actually work properly on this site. You will be left with only a Black screen with no clock or timer on the screen.

You have to download the Offline Installer version instead:
http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp (middle one)

You then have to follow the installation process and verify your version (not on Google Chrome as plugins don't function on this browser any longer) - so either use Mozilla Firefox or Comodo IceDragon. Once verified....reboot your computer and the Java should function properly.

Hope that helps.

* I had the issue with the black screen so experimented a little and found this offline installer works...fine. Probably recommended to remove ALL previous versions also BUT do not delete the Java 8 Update 31 from your downloads folder. (just in case you need to return to it should an error occur at a later date).
