I downloaded Java from here. http://www.java.com/en/download/

I double-clicked on the java icon and clicked on "Run". Then the Java Installer was being downloaded. After that is over, I get the Java Setup. I click "Accept" and then "Next" and then, on the top, it comes "Installation failed".

Can anyone please tell me the cause for this problem and how to get rid of it. I want to download Java to play online games like pool, etc.

Hmm, never seen this. What system/OS are you running on? And have you tried rebooting first and then installing Java? Do you have a previous version of Java installed?

My OS is XP. What do you have to do in rebooting?

No, I don't have any previous version of Java on my Computer.
