Default corrupted downloads

i have recently ran ad-aware and spybot search and destroy. Ever since, anything that i download is corrupted, and when i view webpages, pictures will have lines in them like they didn't fully download. When i download files, the files download like they normally do. If there is a .zip or .rar file, they can't extract because they are corrupted. If its an .exe program to install a program, it's also corrupted. .avi files will pause and freeze like parts didn't get downloaded. Did ad-aware/spybot remove some thing i need?
