Whenever I try to update to the latest version of Java, an installation of Java 7 Update 5 is detected and then I'm asked for the file, jre1.7.0_05-c.msi, which I don't have, so then the installation is cancelled and I'm left unable to upgrade Java.

I just removed the installation entry by deleting the registry key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Installer\Products\4EA42A62D9304AC4784BF238120750FF in regedit.exe and I was then able to upgrade Java without any problems.
If possible, download jre1.7, install it, then uninstall.

Mark is right; in order to be able to reinstall or upgrade java, without the current install MSI file, remove the corresponding entry from the registry ! just search by yourself, or use a reg file like this:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 ; 1.7.5 [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Installer\Products\4EA42A62D9304AC4784BF238120750FF] ; 1.7.25 [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Installer\Products\4EA42A62D9304AC4784BF238120752FF]
play this file and reboot, java is able to install at new ! it would be good to have a reg file containing all of the possibilities for every java version ^^
