Corrupt Downloads

  TicTacToc 19:28 04 Feb 2006

Hi all,

My internet is being odd. I am using a D-Link 300T modem and an A8N-Sli Motherboard with an
Nvidia Nforce Networking Controller and a Marvell Yukon Gigabit ethernet.

The internet is consistent and works well, but all the downloads are not really working properly. When a download finishes it always says how the cabinet may be corrupted or the download has errors in it or something like that so I can't download.

I have tried IE and Mozilla, but that gets similar errors

Any ideas?

try saving the download rather than running it. Then when it is on your hard drive install it from there.

thanks for the info, but I do save it to the hard disk (the option to open it is greyed out).

when I try and open it from my hard drive, I can't run the setup either tho. . .

with ie 7 beta out what are the pros and cons of installing other browsers like firefox and opera which do you prefer what is the best for security, do you have to patch other browsers to work on a pc (windows xp). Can u uninstall ie 6/7 and install another by default.thanks

Do you by any chance use the Nforce network? I just switched over to it after a reinstall and now get tons of corrupted downloads. Before my reinstall I used Marvell and never had any issues.

Thanks, I swapped over the slot I put the ethernet in, and it works great now.
