  1. Whenever I try to instyall a game on VISTA, I get a message that says: CRC error <filename> does not match the file in the setup's .cab file. I get it in both my disk drives, as well as on multiple games, mant of them new out of the box. How do I fix this??

    Disable your antivirus. Test your RAM, test your hard drives. Look over the hard drive and optical drive cables and make sure they are all making good connections.
