To install java 64 bit, you want to first uninstall any java versions on your computer. 

As you can see I have the latest version of java, this is what you'll be installing. Make sure that when you search for java in this menu, that there is nothing showing up. Then restart you computer. Next you want to go to https://java.com/en/download/manual.jsp and grab the offline installer for 64 bit. 

Then just click install. 

Now just reboot one more time, and you will have installed Java 8 update 40!
