Someone tell me where the problem lies here:

I do a fresh boot of my computer from the beginning, not bringing it back from hibernate.

Upon booting, Windows pops up a “User Access Control” or somesuch message asking me if the Java installer can make changes to my computer.

I am on a network that works by redirecting every page I try to access to a login screen. This is the first time I have used my computer all day.

I can’t Alt-Tab out of the UAC screen to open a browser or something to log in. If I click Yes, the installer will start trying to download. Clicking No isn’t what I mean to do.

How, exactly, do I get out of this mess?
