Exclamation new comp

i recenlty built a gaming comp...dual core 2gb ram 7900 gt blah blah blah. I have a problem though. Whenever i try to install programs such as itunes acrobat reader, java etc, its will give me messages saying that the install file is corrupt or an error occurs half way through install. All other programs ie games have installed fine. any thoughts???

These programs you downloaded or from disk?

IF DOWNLOADED : I had this once with all my downloads been corrupt or "7Zip Error", turns out it was the driver for my network card.

Try reinstalling the network/ethernet driver if your setup is simular to mine, should have it on your mobo CD. I had to download an updated driver online on another PC and save it to a pocket harddrive to get it to work.

If these arent downloaded, cant help ya sorry
