I don't even have Sun Java on my computer, but I get the message from Secunia that I have an insecure program and it needs to be patched and the program is Sun Java. I tried to go ahead and download it from Java.com but, it will not load. I get a message while it is loading that "error 25099 unzipping core files failed" and I have to click OK and it rolls back and doesn't load. I guess something is wrong, because I have tried and tried and it will not load. Can anyone help with either problem?

I have Windows Vista Home Basic and I use Firefox.

Morning/welcome ! As a new user of Secunia I'm presuming you are using it in Simple mode.You would be able to gain more info/details if you were to switch to Advanced.It is really not too difficult.
Whilst you say you don't have Java; it would seem Secunia has detected an old file. After scanning, it would show up under the End of Life or Insecure Program tab. If you click on the + sign alongside the prog/entry, it will expand to reveal more info....file path...tech. details, so on and so forth.
Once you've gleaned that info you can come back to the forum with it, and someone will be better able to help you.
You could also try reading previous threads/entries on Java....just in the last few days: those by Maurice Joyce you may find very useful/helpful.

Hi, Cactusrose. See if you have a Java folder in C:\Program Files (C:\Program Files\Java) and if so then delete it and try to install Java again from this link:
http://www.filehippo.com/download_java_runtime/
Hope this helps! Note that the current version is 1.6.0.17

Thanks for all the help. I found Java in the registry and deleted it there, as well as C: Drive and then went to Java.com and it downloaded just great and now is working right. Thanks again.
