I am having trouble once i have downloaded a program most wont let me use them as the come up with error message telling me that files are corrupt or that the exe file is an invalid win32 application. I have run my anti virus and nothing was found as well as spybot search and destroy. Also when downloading a file sometimes it will stay on a certain downloaded percentage for a long time is this normal? Or could that be the problem it not downloading the file at that point properly. I also have been trying to download another anti-virus to try but have had no luck getting one to load yet. Can anyone help or tell me what these problems are?

Thank you for helping

Kasperky Online Scanner should be an easy access scanner and its thorough so it might pick up what your AV didn't

as far as the corrupt files etc Where are you downloading them from? maybe hte site/place that you are in fact dl'ing them from is bad or contains malicious programs, Or is in fact useless..

Maybe something to do wiht your windows is corrupt in itself..

just a couple of thoughts

That error message usually means one of two things: either your computer is infected, or the download is incomplete or corrupt in some way. If your download seems to "hang" it might be a problem with your internet connexion.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
