Are you getting any error messages when you try to download Java? Without knowing specifically what the problem is, I can still give you some possible solutions.

Timing Out

It's possible that your connection is timing out - are you on a dial-up connection? Some people with dial-up find that they can't complete the download. Check your dial-up networking settings and increase the time before the Internet connection times out.

If you are using a laptop that has Wi-Fi capabilities, go to a hotspot that has wireless and try the download from there. Otherwise, consider upgrading to another type of connection that will run faster.

ActiveX Plug In

Sometimes the ActiveX plug-in is corrupted, so make sure you can enable it on your computer. Go to Start, then Programs and then Manage Add-ons. You will then need to click to enable programs that apply to Active X.

Download Offline

The best thing to do when the download is failing for no obvious reason is to make sure there are no other Java versions on your computer and then do an offline download. First, go to the Java website at Sun Microsystems. Scroll down until you see "Java SE Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 10". Click on the button to download. Following the prompts, you need to choose the platform you are running and the language you use. You will be asked to accept the license agreement. Now you want to download the offline installation and file it on your desktop.

Once you have it downloaded, but not installed, go to Start. Open the Control Panel and go to Programs and Features. Click on Add/Remove Programs. Uninstall any previous Java versions that you see. When that's done, go back to the Java that you stored on your desktop and do a clean install.

I think this kind of install will work for you. If it doesn't, write back and let us know the exact nature of the failure, if you are getting any error messages and what exactly happens during the Java download process. We should be able to solve this problem easily.
