I've had Java installed on my computer for a while. However lately, whenever I go to a website which has got a java applet in it, i only see a white box where the applet previously used to run (this is happening on multiple sites, not just one).

I figured I might have to download java again, so I went to this page and downloaded the installer:

However, each time the installer finishes downloading whatever it needs to, I get the error: 'Uncompression of downloaded file failed':

What shall I do?

I'm using Windows XP, and I'm still able to run Netbeans on the computer, the problem seems to only be with applets, and occurs in all browsers.

I'd recommend to download the latest Java bundle directly without a download manager and install it the usual way.
