RE: Cannot update Java or verify current version
I have also encounter this problem since my first day of using Vista. Up till
now it has been about 2 yrs and I have yet to solved this problem too.
Please, anyone who has the answer and kind enough to give it, please help.
Please do not ask me to switch off account user or firewall.
I have tried everything and it still doesn't works.
note* this problem does not only happens on Java, it also happens to many
3rd party software which requires automatic updating.
