Woo! New laptop. Proceeded to download everything I wanted (social networking programs, etc) without a problem. Except, for Java.

The only constant error message I receive is "Failure to download (program) from (location) to (folder)."
The set-up file (both Online & Offline) downloads without a problem. Once I run this set-up Wizard, it all falls apart.

I've attempted:
- Downloading both Online & Offline versions of the installation
- Checking the 'Change Destination Folder' box
- Downloading Windows Installer

Once I hit "Install >" the error (mentioned above) appears and the installer shuts down completely.
Also, I've checked the Program Files for Java, and none have been created, so I can't really delete them ;P

Going crazy! I would appreciate any help anyone has to offer.
Fee free to ask me for more detail.

Thanks; Sai

Please download JavaRa from the link in my signature below to your desktop and unzip it to its own folder
* Run JavaRa.exe, pick the language of your choice and click Select. Then click Remove Older Versions.
* Accept any prompts.
* Open JavaRa.exe again and select Search For Updates.
* Select Update Using Sun Java's Website then click Search and click on the Open Webpage button. Download and install the latest Java Runtime Environment (JRE) version for your computer.
