Can't Install

When I download Java, it won't let me install it. When I tried to delete it, and run it again, it said "Error deleting: Make sure not in use or write protected.". So, how do I do this?

Sound like you have a permission issue, too many programms running, or a virus.

Can you verify that it is not any of these?

I know that I don't have too many programs running, and I just ran Norton, so no virus.... How would I fix the Permission Issue?

Well if you are at home permissions are probably not a issue, some offices restrict what can be installed.

I have norton internet security and if I have a problem like this I will just disable it while I run the install. That is if you are sure that you've downloaded a viruse free program. I'm to lazy to figure out all of the Norton settings, but you can check.

You could also try to install it in safe mode. Make sure the java installation program is saved on your computer.
Shut off your computer.
First try to restart you computer normally and Install normally.
Still a problem then shut off you computer again.
When you restart hold the f8 key, and select safe mode with the arrow key.

Just keep going until you get into safe mode after a few more questions.

You might want to try to down load the java install again incase it was a problem.

My operating system is Windows XP and it is java 5.0 (?). I am not sure, but I am just trying to play pogo games... lol. I would like to learn more about other degrees of Java... do you know how I could do that on the web?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
