Problems installing MSI's
I am the network administrator of a windows 2003 domain for a school. A couple months ago i have installed java 6 update 6, 6 update 7 and 6 update 10 msi using group policy. I have assigned the package to all computers in the designated OU. Last week i decided to remove all previous java installs, so i navigate to where my GPO is located edit the policy selected the java installs and then click remove. I then select the removal method: Allow users to continue to use the software but prevent new installations then click OK. Then when i try to install java 6 update 11 it recognise that there is a policy and try to install the policy but without success. It just keeps saying install java 6 update 11 but actually it is not installing. It seems as though it just hangs there.
I would appreciate any ideas on helping to resolve this issue.

Don't know whether 6u11 is any better, but the Sun 6u10 MSI had problems and unless you wrapped some magic around it, that probably hasn't uninstalled correctly. See if you've got a java quick start service running, disable that and see what happens.
I wouldn't bother keeping up with these updates unless there's a pressing reason e.g. an app needs it, or there's critical security fix.
