    That error usually occurs if the downloaded file is damaged.

    The usual solution is to download again from somewhere else.Bearshare --IE 7

    Make sure you delete the damaged one before downloading another.

    The fact they your getting the error for two different programs might
    indicate your connection is dropping out.Possibly spyware.

    If necessary go HERE follow the instructions then post an HJT log in the Security forum.
