    Did you try this? (Give attention to the version numbers!)

    Computers running Windows Vista may include a version of Java that causes the browser to hang. The reported version is JRE build 1.6.0-oem-b104 [12]. The problem can be solved by downloading the latest Java version from java.com: Hot Games, Cool Apps and installing it manually. According to this article, JRE 6 is the preferred version of Java for Windows Vista, although recent JRE 5 versions may also work.

    While trying to install the latest version of Java recommended for my computer, I received the following errors. Error: applying transforms, verify that the specified transform paths are valid & Error: This installation package could not be opened. Verify that the package exists and you can access it.

    The following was the solution that helped me:

    If you removed any traces of failed installations, go ahead and try to download it again.
    If using Windows XP, go to Start-my computer-double click on local C:- choose the documents and setting folder- choose the username (the name of the person who is logged in if multiple users are set up)- choose the application data folder- choose the Sun folder- choose the Java folder and look for the jre file version of the one you are trying to download and double click on that folder. Look for an image of a computer with a disk that reads Windows installer package and double click on that. It should then take you through the process of installation.

    If you cannot find this folder, try to enable the option of showing hidden files or folders. Don’t know if it will help but it’s what I did before doing all this. You should be able to go to start-my computer-my documents on the left hand side and click the folder tab up top in your tool bar- click on view and look for the box that says show hidden files or folders.

    I hope this helps, If not, shoot me an email and I will try to help you because I spent 3 days trying to download the latest java version so I know the aggravation you must feel.
    My email address is vnessam@hotmail.com. Write Java help in the subject line so I will know its not junk mail! Good luck!!!! You can also do a Google search on that java error and lots of forums have different options to try. Lots of people are having the same problem.
