I would uninstall all Java and get the latest JDK. Make sure you get a 64 bit one if you have a 64 bit processor

Agree - the command you show works fine on my system.

If you upgraded Java recently, there may be more than one version installed. Java 8 left Java 7 behind. So (agreeing with the above) uninstall all versions and start again.
