I know this is probably not the right place for it, but anyhow:

I have a problem with java, though up to date, it says I need to update my plugin, it is enabled in my browser and apparently up to date.

So I uninstalled java RE and attempted to re-install, I get an error message:

Java has found a problem with a file:

fx -runtime.exe

And it won't install because of this, help!?

It seems to be a quite new problem and I have only seen one answer so far.
The answer looks more like a hidden ad/malware thing though so beware...

You might have to wait for a high quality answer.

Ok thanks, scanned my computer and it seems clean as well, I've been having issues with Java for a while, I thought I'd try and sort it out, kinda wish I hadn't now Tongue

Your JavaFX runtime has probably been infected, Java performs a control to see whether it has been modified by a malware and it shows the message you see when it gets corrupted. In my humble opinion, a malware observes your file system or anything on your operating system that shows you're updating Java and tries to put its crap into this runtime. New viruses and spywares appear everyday under Windows, an antivirus cannot be always up to date. Another root cause could be the presence of a very recent update of Java 6, maybe there is a conflict between this and Java 1.7.

not sure how it could be infected before it exists? Or will it infect it as it's installing?

I don't believe it could be a conflict as there are no traces of java left on this machine
