  1. I cannot install anything with using either a disk or downloaded software. A program will start installing and then it will pop up with an error saying something about a cab file. I have reformatted my computer numerous times with Windows Vista Home Premium and Windows Xp Professional and I always still seem to have this problem. Someone told me it could be a hard drive issue so I got another hard drive and I still have the same issue. I also tried using 2 different DVD drives but got the same error... different cables as well.

    I would try-

    Start, Run, type "sfc /scannow" without quotes

    and hit Enter.

    Have your OS cd ready it will ask for it...
