I have been getting sporadic but fairly frequent CRC errors in downloads, in disks I have burned when used on other systems, and sometimes even when attempting to install (game) from a factory disk.

If it were any one of these things alone, I would know how to proceed; but I don't know what would cause CRC errors in all these areas together.

Would someone please suggest a likely area to investigate? Thank you.

(FWIW, I have been having problems with my broadband suddenly dropping out for a minute or two. I also recently had a master boot virus, but my system now is a clean install on a different drive. I do have the old drive mounted for data recovery purposes, but it is disabled when not in use, and BIOS is set never to boot from that drive, and not to "try other devices".)

Could be bad RAM.

You could have other viruses.

Could be a failing hard drive.

Could be a bad IDE/SATA Cable.

could be a lot of things.

If I understand you...the second drive is still infected? I say that based on the statement that said drive is bootable.

I guess I'm wondering why...for either of those possibilities.
