Need Help installing java - can you help me?
I love Java as well as programming. I am very new to Java. I have a serious problem installing the programme as well as making it work with Textpad or Notepad on My Microsoft Windows PC at home.
At first, I downloaded the Java SE Development Kit 6 (also known as JDK™ 6). Then I install it. And downloaded the TextPad programme, which I installed too. But when I compile my my java code such as:
public class helpMe
public static void main(String args)
System.out.println("Hello World, here comes someone with a problem installing Java");
But I saved it as helpMe.java and tried to run it on Textpad but nothing happens.
I have also tried the tutorial on the page below, but nothing is working.
"Hello World!" for Microsoft Windows (The Java™ Tutorials > Getting Started > The "Hello World!" Application)
I get the message below when I try NotePad and run the command prompt
'javac' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file'
Then I follow the link below to do what they say, and still nothing works.

Does anyone have better suggestions for me on what to do to make java work for me on my PC please?
I will really appreciate your help.
