    Just downloaded what I thought was an update for Java,from Sun Microsystems website,to my desktop for installation. I will not install. And I cannot delete it from the desktop. I get the message:

    cannot delete jre-1_5_0_06-windows-i586-p-iftw.exe:access is denied
    make sure the disk is not full or write protected and that the file is
    not currently in use.

    This thing is sitting there not working,I would like to delete is from my desktop. Can anyone help,please?

    Restart your computer and tap F8 at bootup and select Safe Mode. When in safe mode see if you can delete the file.
