Default Having trouble downloading Frostwire

I downloaded Frostwire, saved it on my desktop and installed it. When I go to open it, the popup says "unable to load, download and install it again". Same thing happens with Limewire.com and Java.com. Am I downloading to the right place (desktop)? It's hard to experment with different things when it takes almost 2 hours to download something.
I have dialup, Dell Dimension 9100, Pentium 3.0 GHz, 1.0 GB Ram.

Wow dialup? You shouldn't be using the internet!

Umm...try updating your version of Java, its probably outdated.

DSL is not available at my house. It is just down the road at my sister's though. I've always had dialup internet and I've never had trouble downloading before.
My java automatically updates once a month, but I manually tried to update it and it says "This installation package could not be opened. Verify that the package exists and that you can access it".
