Default I think its a hardware issue.

I bought a computer from a friend, and when it was at his house it never used to do this.

When ever i try to update any of my games, random errors will occur.
Some times when i log in, all files on my computer will be corrupt, then i will re log, and every thing will be back to normal.

anyone have any suggestion on why this computer hates me?

the only thing i changed was a power supply and i added another hard drive.

the computer is custom but the parts are kind of old, so that could be one reason but other than that, its acting really weird.

Odd...

Could be something simple like a loose cable or wire somewhere.

sounds like a bad drive, try to take out the drive you added. I had the same problem when one of my drives went bad and i would get random errors all the time. So try to run Chkdsk on them and take the slave out (non windows drive).

Is the new drive you added ide? If so i have seen 1 bad drive cause both drives on that ide channel to have problems. If you can spare it, try putting the drive on the other ide channel and see if you still have the same problems.
