Hi all, a message popped up a few days ago telling my that there was a Java update to be installed for my system. I clicked it and it tried to run, but it failed and gave the following error message:
Error 1401.Could not create key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\InProgress. System error 1019

I also can't uninstall Java from my PC. I tried that because I thought a fresh install with the latest version might work, but I couldn't do that.

I have no other problems with my PC, I run spybot and adaware regularly and I use ZA firewall and Avast! Anti Virus which runs a weekly scan. System is WinXP SP3, C2D, 2gig RAM, 8800GTX.

Any advice would be much appreciated, thanks!

Hello telo and welcome,

I would try using JavaRa to remove all unneeded files associated with obsolete versions of Java then use the tool again to update Java. http://raproducts.org/
Regards,

Alan.
