Default Files that I DL are corrupt

I have a problem and its begging to get quite obnocious.
Whenever I am downloading files... some of the time the files are corrupt... And other times they are just fine... They tend to be corrupt on say file sizes of like 2 meg or larger... This is getting to be a real pain any help would be appreciated.

Amd athlon 3700+
6600 gt
1.5gig of ram

its probably like the other guy who was in here yesterday. are you using the nVIDIA firewall? it has a nasty tendency to do this.

I am pretty sure it was my ram... though nothing came up on memtest... I took my gig stick out and just left my 512 in and it works now... But this really stinks because now I have to come up with more ram from somewhere
