It tells me it's already installed and then it says it can't upgrade something that's not installed. I tried uninstalling and re-installing but I get the same problem. Any suggustions?

I've done all of that multiple times. This is the first time I've had a problem with Java since its inception.

This is what I did initially when Secunia told me that Java was out of date and this is what started the problem. I have not been able to update Java by any means since.

I ended up stripping all Java references from the registry and then I was able to install. I now have a working (and updated) copy of Java.
