Are they the same thing? Im unsure but anyway, I get a 25099 error: unzipping core files failed

Ive seen workarounds and advice but they have been for XP.

I have Vista home premium, I mostly use google chrome but also use firefox.

any help would be appreciated.

I have seen so many updates that I am totally confused as to which one I am supposed to be using. DOES ANYONE KNOW WHICH ONE WE NEED TO USE TO PATCH THIS? Any and all help will be most appreciated. Thank you!

hoopster: I don't have Vista but I had the exact problem you have and fixed it by deleting the java folder from c:\program files and deleting the java folder from c:\Documents and Settings\username\application data\sun. After deleting those 2 folders try to install java again and it should install with no problems.

Mcd, thank you so very, very much!! I had to allow the updates to have access to some areas normally blocked by Zone Alarm Pro, however there was no other way I could do it insofar as I am aware.

Once again, thank you so much for your invaluable assistance. It is very much appreciated!! :)

Error 25099 is created because U have jqs.exe running.

Press CTRL+ALT+DELETE to bring up the Task Manager. Open the Processes Tab & look for JQS,highlight it & End Process via the button provided.

Try to install from here:
