        I had the same error message today after upgrading.
        To solve it, from within OpenOffice Writer (Possibly the others
        as well), I went to Tools -> Options -> Java
        After a few seconds, a screen with Sun Microsystems Inc.1.6.0_06
        Sun Microsystems Inc 1.6.0 with accessibility comes up.
        I ticked the box for version 1.6.0_06, restarted OpenOffice
        Writer and the error message went away.
        Hope that helps
