I needed a installer to run the installer.
I don't understand this. Next time please post the precise error that you get.
Why do you want to install anything?
Is it Intel or PPC?
Try the combo updater as advised.

You can call Apple Customer Support 1-800-767-2775, provide the Serial Number and specifications of the Mac, and for a fee, a replacement set of system discs (if available), can be ordered.
However, the discs will be for the original version of OS, that was pre-installed, when the Mac was manufactured.

I downloaded the one for power pc, but it still gives me the same error. There is no default application specified to open the document (example) java 7 Update 09.pkg. What do I use with it? I tried going into applications but there is no utilities. Another site said there is something wrong with the mac launch services or is currupted. I dont know if that means a serious problem or I am just not understanding something

Wait, PPC Macs can't run Java 7, or even Java 6 much.
At the Apple Icon at top left>About this Mac.
Then click on More Info>Hardware and report this upto but not including the Serial#...

You have not said why you want an installer. Is it possible that you have a fully working Mac and are trying to install things for the wrong Mac? Try to answer all questions put to you by those attempting to help.

Operating system requirements: For Java 7, you will need an Intel-based Mac running Mac OS X version 10.7.3 (Lion) and above. Installing Java on a Mac is performed on a system wide basis, for all users, and administrator privileges are required. Java 7 can not be installed on a per-user basis.
Browser requirements: A 64-bit browser (Safari or Firefox, for example) is required to run Java 7 on Mac OS X. 32-bit browsers such as Chrome do not support Java 7 on the Mac platform.

I was trying to get java 7 on my mac so that my daughter could play runescape on it. So pretty much I have a PPC that cant run java, but it does the same thing even when I try to install mackeeper 2.2. so its not just java only.

Feel blessed that you couldn't install MacKeeper.
I have no idea how they can get away with advertising MacKeeper at all.
You really really need to uninstall it, but maybe not using their uninstaller.
Klaus1's great post on MacKeeper...
