Hello new here, I couldn't find where this belonged. It's really hard with dail-up my satillite broke and couldn't afford to get it fixed right now so.......why can't I download Java and Adobe? I just bought this new computer, it's a Dell Inspiron 580s. This is the error code I get Unable to download http://java.sun.com/update/1.6.0/1.6.0_16-b70.xml for installation. Not only is it frustrating having dail-up I waited all that time to download for it not to install. Hope I have all the info I need so someone can help me. Thanks Kimmie
