Java install failure

I have tried to install Java onto my windows xp system for awhile now. I have tried with IE and Firefox. And I keep getting either of these 2 errors.

1) The installation package could not be opened. Verify that the package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer package.
2) Uncompression of downloaded file failed.

I have deleted all java off of my system, and still cant get it to load. it started when my system told me a update was available and it wouldnt update I kept getting the 2nd error message. Hope their is something that can be done. I have even tried downloading older versions but that didnt work either. I have tried downloading and running the downloads, I have closed all browser and tried running them. I have turned off firewall. i just cant get it to work.
