NSIS error? Do I have a hardware problem?

  1. I've tried downloading some programs from the net (bittorret, bitlord, even itunes) and I cant get the downloads to install.

    The error msg is titled: 'NSIS ERROR'. Says that the install file is corrupt or incomplete. Goes on to say it could be the result of a damaged disk, failed download or a virus.

    Like I said I cant seem to download anything successfully, although the error msg's were sometimes different.

    Got Win XP SP2. Checked to see if my hard disks were not running properly, but Device Manager says they are running fine.

    Do I have a damaged disk?

    My specs are:

    AMD Athlon64 3000+
    2 Gb ram
    80 Gb Western Dig SATA HD
    200Gb Maxtor SATA HD
    ATI Radeon X700A graph card

    Thanks fastco. That did it :)

    Thanks again fastco. All I had to do was disable the windows firewall.

    Cheers
