On attempting to download the latest Java update, I was at first successful. However, the plug-in seemed to be ineffective. I uninstalled it to try again. However, this time my Anti-Virus software detected a possible viral file. A little cautious, I canceled the installation to check the Java website on an issue like this. A support FAQ question had me realize that this was a common error among some older Anti-Virus programs. So I began the installation again. This time, I got this error:
Error 1304.Error writing to file C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\zipper.exe. Verify you have access to that directory.
Note that this is the file that was possible spyware.
When typing this into my files address bar, I got this response:
Cannot file 'file:///C:/Program%20Files/Java/jre6/zipper.exe. Make sure the path or Internet address is correct.
I've run a few diagnostic tests, restarted the computer. No good. I'd truly appreciate some help.
