I am operating with Windows Vista Home Basic and have had trouble updating my files after a clean reinstallation. Finally succeeded through many strategies, but in doing so (a jillion times) eventually noticed that failures occurred whenever the 'System Distribution' file in the windows folder had not been emptied of logs and previous downloads. Not sure what this means. Any ideas? Could there be a problem with hard disk, processor, motherboard, electrical shorts? (Do not have problems downloading to other computers in my home, so my overall connection is good.)

Thanks.
