My guess is that you have a JVM installed as a plug-in to a browser or something like that on your machine, and the path to it's bin directory is in your PATH, but the bin directory of your JDK installation is either in the PATH after that location or is not in your PATH. I would check the PATH and add the bin directory of your JDK installation before any other locations that might contain an interpreter.

Keith, thank you very much for your help!
Very fast response and your suggestion worked. I did not scroll down far enough in the system variables to see the PATH and so created one in the user variables. When I saw it I deleted the one I created and put the bin path as the first one in the Path variable.
