Recently software will not install on my machine. I noticed it when I tried to update Java because a website that i use said that I needed a later version to use the service (even though my version should have been adequate according to the website) but it would not update. I removed older versions and then tried to download latest version online and received message "Unable to download http://javadl-esd.sun.com/update/1.6.0/1.6.0_22-b74.xml for installation". I then saved the program onto my desktop and ran it and received the following "Installation Failed The wizard was interrupted before Jave6Update22 could be completely installed. To complete installation at another time, please run setup again".
I then tried to install Lotus Forms online and nothing happened and then saved program to desktop and tried to install from there and the message "Now installing Lotus Forms Viewer 3.5.1 Please wait this will take a few minutes" pops up and then goes away. I watched the same thing play out while watching Task Manager services tab, the program is running then just goes away.
I've run Spybot and Webroot and they both report the machine as clean.
Then I tried to restore my system to a previous point when I knew the Java had worked correctly but i received the message that my system could not be restored to that point. I tried a couple of other points with the same result.
I then tried to downloaded Symantec Endpoint Protection to my desktop and install and received the follwing message "An error prevents this program from continuing: Can't write temp file The system cannot find the path specified" The message was in a box entitled Free Extractor Error.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
