For the last few days, every time I download a program, usually games, when I try to unzip the program I get an error. The error is crc check failed.
It has happened on mutilple programs from mutiple suppliers.

I ran Spy Bot and Ad Aware and the each found problems that I deleted, but I still have the same issue.

Any ideas?

Running Windows XP home with all updates.

Virus software is AVG.

Are you on dial-up or a high speed line? Chances are your files are getting corrupted during the download. Also, if you're on dial-up and you are having some trouble with it, it might be that the phone line in your house is miswired - the pair of wires being used may be reversed. I have a tester for that and have often found reversed lines in people's houses. You can use the internet but it often has problems or is slow.

Otherwise, it might be your memory or some other hardware problem.

Possible corruption in the unzip program, your downloader/browser, or the downloaded file itself. Try uninstalling and reinstalling your unziping program - if it's the Windows tool you may have to try a repair install.

Also, some of what you removed with the antivirus/spyware programs may have damaged your system (and it wasn't repaired).
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

I put a new Winzip on my system and this problem has not gone away.

On a regular basis, when I download an update or program, I get a error message that the file is corrupt and cannot but unzipped. It does not happen every time so it is sporadic.

Is there downloadable software that will confirm that my registry is in good shape or will I have to reload Windows?

I tried a Windows repair, but it asks for my administator number. I never put an administrator number on this sytems so I have no idea what that would be. It's an E machine so there must be a default one.

When the screen pops up asking for the Aministrator password leave the password box blank and press the <Enter> key.

Ok Still have the problem!

I got rid of my zip program and downloaded a new version of Winzip.

No change


I tried to fix Windows XP home but it asks for a password. I tried leaving it blank. It will not except blank.
And I know that I have never put an admistrator password on this emachine.

My guess is there is something corrupted in my registry.

And suggestions out there?

Every time I download a program, it says that the file is corrupt and can't be opened...
