unabel to launch down load

I have been trying to update drivers for my ati radeon 9000 pro video card. I have downloaded them from ati.com to my destop. the instructions from the website say to launch the driver bundle, when I double click on it I get the hourglass for a split second and nothing happens, I have also tried to right click it and hit open with the same results. I am running ME on a dell 4300. I have tried this with norton disabled also. any help would be great

This sounds like you have a problem with your java virtual machine(jvm).You may need to find out what version you have on your computer.and redownload another application. This is a good website to check for a download copy/paste this address into your address window :http://www.java.com/en/download/windows_automatic.jsp

tried the failed install, no go. I don't think it's a failed install as it won't launch to have a chance to fail, maybe I'm wrong.
