as of yet i have not found any help with this problem.
when i download winrar(latest) i get the following:
"some installation files are corrupt. please download a fresh copy and retry the installation"
on certain random cds/dvds that i try to install i also get a file is corrupt error.
when i did have winrar installed before i recovered my system i could not extract files from .rar folders...i got a file corrupt error along with crc (which i understand to be cyclic redundancy check).
this is my second base unit.
all that i have done above has been carried out successfully on 3 other different pcs and notebooks so i am 90% sure this is just my system and not a corrupt cd or downloaded file.
my pc is less than 2 weeks old and i have had an engineer out twice from pcworld where i purchased as well as a base unit change.
my first base unit had the above problems as well as 3 'faulty' drives (by this i mean the engineer replaced the drive twice and it was faulty, it disappeared from myComputer, wouldnt open etc..)
i was wondering id there is anyone out there who can help me with this problem?
