    I have a macbook pro that is a little over a year old.

    For some reason Java is no longer working.

    I tried Software Update but Java is still not installed. When I try to go to Java preferences the icon on the stage just appears and disappears.

    I tried to download from the website and get this:

    This update requires Mac OS X 10.4.11 or higher. Mac OS X Tiger only.

    Anyone know what's wrong? I have no idea what to do. Thank you.

    A Macbook Pro that is a little over a year old will NOT be running Tiger. You are probably running OS 10.6 or maybe 10.5 but NOT 10.4. You can look for updates on and ignore those that aren't for your version of OS X. To check your version of OS X, click the apple icon at the left of your menu bar and pick "About this Mac".
