I received notification on the task bar that there are Java updates to download. When I attempted to download the updates everything stopped at the "Windows Installer" window. The message reads: "This application package could not be opened. Verify that the package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer package". I am running a genuine copy of Windows XP with SP2. Thanks for your help, it has been very frustrating!
