Everytime I try to load a program like java on XP. it comes up with unable to install as "another installtion is in pproess. you must complete that installation before continuing this one. I am not installing anything so not sure why this comes up.

Have a search for a file named WININIT.INI, which is probably located in the WINDOWS folder. If you find it change the name slightly by removing the final I from .INI and then try to install your programme.

Once you have installed your programme it might be best to rename WININIT.IN back to WININIT.INI.
