Default Yet ANOTHER problem with the computer I just built...

Ok, so to recap I just built my first computer that i've had quite a few problems with (software related).

I reformatted my 16MB Cache 250GB WD Caviar SATA 300 harddrive again and resintalled Windows fresh. EVERYTHING works so far, except for one major problem-

Whenever I download any files from the internet (liek program setup files) and run them (itunes setup, fulltiltpoker setup) I get an error message that either the file is corrupt or the location from whcih they are installing is corrupt.

This doesn't happen with CD-based installs, nor does this happen with setup files transferred direcly to my harddrive either from another drive or from CD.

What's the deal? I'm really starting to get frustrated...

Problem fixed!!!

Just so everyone knows, uninstalling hte firewall won't do it.

You have to uninstall the entire Nvidia Network Utilities Suite. The whole thing. Get it out of there.

And, now that I've done this, my download speeds have gone from about 400kbs 10 minutes ago to about 700kbs now.


Freakin Sweet.

I owe you some beers. Let me know if you're ever in Chicago!

try a simple firewall like the basic zonealarm package to replace it. it will probably interfere with your internet but it is worth a try.
