I can't download Java update 20 because it is looking for a CD with update 18 which doesn't exist, i might have deleted the Java folder on my computer without uninstalling first so using Javara doesn't work.

This is the error message.

Error 1714. The older version of Java™6 Update 20 cannot
be removed.

The feature you are trying to use is on a CD-ROM or other
removable disk that is not available.

Insert the Java™6 Update 18 disk and click OK.
