I got this error message (in Subject line) at the end of updating Java (V6,Update 16) on my new Lenovo W500 with Windows 7. Is this anything I should be concerned about? Are any actions required?

Were you logged in as an administrator when installing the JRE / JDK?

Thanks for your reply Rob, and no I wasn't... I will try again... question; should I unload Java first, and then reload when logged in as Administrator (or just login and download/run)?

The cleanest way is to uninstall first, then reinstall. However, since the locations are going to be the same reinstalling alone should be enough.
