Hi

I'm using WinXP Home and I've got a really annoying problem- basically everything I download that is over ~15Mb becomes corrupted. I'm on ADSL, have tried using a different router, have swapped out the motherboard (another Asus) and have run AVG. I'm guessing either my computers infected with a virus, the integrated LAN corrupts things, or I'm just getting ****ty service from my ISP.
What is the main culprit for consistent corrupt downloads? :(

File error differs with the program i'm trying to install. The errors basically say that some part of the file is corrupted and the installation cannot continue. :(
I'm downloading the files to a folder on the desktop.

If you're using Firefox go to the download folder, then make a new folder on the desktop for each program. I think you might accidentally be installing in a temp file?

A file that is only temporarily there.

Try making a new folder on the desktop -> Extract the files, or copy them -> Put them in the folder on the desktop -> try to install now.

Make sure you're installing in the folder on the desktop or in Program Files

I thought this was an installation error? I though it would be corrupt if it was in a temp file.

Sorry, I don't know the answer. I'm sure someone will be able to help.

Probably just an issue with the file type..

Well there's nothing there but what I'd expect to see in a clean install.

You say you are using DSL -- did your service provider supply line filters for the setup?

I would suspect some issue with the phone line or connection if this has continued throough 2 motherboards.

Have you contacted them and had them test the connection? It's also possible the modem could be bad.

PS: are you located in Tokyo? I'm wondering if the recent cable break in the Asia region there is a factor
