I just finished solving hardware issues now I am having software issues... grrrr.....

Whenever I go to download a program, as soon as it is done I get an error pop-up that says that the signature cannot be verified and that I should not continue. It then closes my attempt to install the program. When I click on the install file in the folder it says the file it corrupt...any suggestions?

If you're using IE, Click Tools>Internet Options>Advanced Tab. Deselect "Check for Signatures on Downloaded Programs" if it is selected then click OK.
As far as what you've already downloaded and is now identified as corrupt you can delete.
Try a new and different download for testing.

Is this just one download from one site? If so, then it's possible that the copy on the site is corrupt (but unlikely).

Can you download successfully from any other sites?

It looks as if Microsoft.com is the culprit...I can download programs from sources like download.com, but every file I download from microsoft is corrupt.

Are you talking specifcly microsoft updates?
If so, delete the contents (not the actual folders) of the DataStore, Download and EventCache folders under C:\Windows\Software Distribution. This will remove any update history but you won't have any anyways. You'll need to temporarily stop the auto updates service first before doing the above however.
If your using a download manager, don't :thumbsup:
If none of this helps, try a download and installation of a MS update from here.

Yes my Windows is legitimate. In addition, some active X controls do not load either, citing the same "digital signature" errors.

You need to be more specific with your responses to questions. What program/ active X control can you not install? Give a link to the web page you are downloading from.

I cannot install anything from Microsoft.com. I cannot install Active X (it is a flash plugin, but Windows calls it an Active X control) from NVidia to update my video card drivers. I can download stuff from download.com. That is all I can give you. Some things download fine, but others do not and windows gives me error messages saying the "digital signature is invalid" or the "publisher is unknown". Both messages result in corrupted downloads.

Do you have 3rd party software restricting scripts? If so, what software are you using?

I have a firewall and antivirus, but they never prevented downloads in the past and I switched both of them off to test them out but I still had the problem despite them being turned off.

I think I am just going to reformat my hard drive and start fresh.
