Windows XP Professional and "corrupted install files"

  1. Windows XP Professional and "corrupted install files" - Solved

    Hello. I got a new computer with Windows XP Professional a few days ago. Yesterday I connected it to the Internet and downloaded a few programs, such as UltimateZip, the latest nVidia ForceWare driver, Zone Alarm, AntiVir and the Battlefield 2 demo.

    This is the problem: When I tried installing them, none of them worked. I got error messages like "Corrupted install file" and "The executable you are attempting to run has been corrupted". The Battlefield 2 demo setup wouldn't do anything if I clicked it - no error messages, no installer window... nothing.

    I have been succesful in installing some other programs, though. Ad-Aware and Opera worked just fine. I've never had problems like this on Windows 98. Where do you think the problem is? :confused:

    Many thanks for any help.

    EDIT: I discovered that I had nVidia Firewall on that somehow "corrupted" the downloads. Thanks for your help! ;)
