Java jdk8u.exe file stops downloading from oracle.com
I do not know if this is the right forum for this post. I am going to post it anyway.
I have been trying to download jdk8u51.exe from www.oracle.com/downloads since 12 July. On 12 July, I tried downloading jdk8u45.exe x86 version. Download worked properly until 174MB
was completed. Then it stopped downloading the last 1MB. I kept trying for many days but it failed to do so. Again I tried downloading fresh the same file. But got the same problem. On 29 July, I retried downloading jdk8u51.exe x64 version. Download worked properly and very fast untill 179MB. But it is refusing to download the last 1MB.
I am trying to download this file almost everyday since 12 July. But the last 1MB of the file is not downloading.
OK, does anyone find this funny or there might be a reason behind all this!
Thank you all for the great posts.

This section is not the right place for this question, if you look at the main page you will see different sections for each operating system....
But thatīs no problem, we can move the post....
Which operating system and browser are you using ?

Clear your cache and try again. Else use a different browser and see.

Yes, pls move it to the right section. I am using win8 as well as xp. I used firefox latest version to download it on winxp.

Moving the post might be a problem since we donīt have a section for XP....
Windows XP is obsolete, Microsoft doesnīt support it anymore, no security-updates are released.
You should not use it anymore, itīs not safe.
Which version of XP are you using ?
I did a quick search, Firefox doesnīt support older versions of XP (SP1), but there might also be problems with SP2 & SP3.
But since you also have W8, try download the file using W8.
Also, as already sugggested by Andy above, try another browser.

I use WINXP (SP3) but i am going to change it. I know support for it is closed.
I posted this as, when I download the file, it goes on smoothly until the last 1 MB. If the file is 180 MB, then it stops downloading at 179 MB. It happens the same always. So this cannot be a browser error!

How can you be sure ?

Try download with another O/S (W8), or browser.

Thank you HappyAndyK and Hackerman1. Cleared cache and used (updated) google chrome this time and tried again. But the same problem persists.
180 Mb completed and then downloading stopped.
So, I am posting the link: "http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk8-downloads-2133151.html".
It is jdk-8u51-windows-x64.exe (180.51 Mb) file for Java SE developers.

The file(s), not the webbpage...
