Go to the Sun's Java SE download page (link provided below) and click on the "Download" link for the "JDK 6 with NetBeans 5.5" bundle. This will take you to the Download page that lists the platforms this package is available for. Before you can proceed with the download you must click on the "Accept License Agreement" radio button. Then you can click on the download link for the Windows package (which is the last entry in the list). After clicking on the link, the download should begin automatically. This download is approximately 127 Megabytes and may take a while to download.
