    Hi, try and download here java.com: Hot Games, Cool Apps . Sometimes when installing a driver it may not have 'driver verification'. All this actually means is the software has been seen by Microsoft and given a licence (all for a princely sum). You don't 'need' this license for the software to work. You should get two options: Abort the operation because the software needs verification or continue with the install. Just click continue. If however your getting slightly different dialogue boxes to one I'm thinking of, I'm going to need more information so try and remember exactly what it says. Hope this helps. :)

    Hi again, I did a little looking and found this page on error messages Cannot Verify Installation - 1.5.0 Let me know if this is what your getting although reading the page there does seem some sort of work around. good luck.

    Hi, thanks for the info. It seems you need to upgrade your 'installer'. Try this download here Download details: Windows Installer 3.1 Redistributable (Out of the three downloads your needing the installer one). Once it's been updated try the Java download/install again.
    Just a thought... What do you have your automatic update utility set at? If it's not set to automatically download and install updates you may want to change it. This can be accessed by the Control Panel.
