Default Corrupted Downloads - Baffled......

Hi all,

I hope somebody here can help because this problem is driving me nuts.

Over the last week I've been having this weird problem with big downloads (200 - 400MB usually). The file downloads fine and unpacks/installs but crashes out during the installation process - normally 75% of the way through.

The standard routine is they crash saying that a .cab file is corrupt and then an error 1335, followed by an internal error 2350. This has happened with the Doom 3 demo, Full Spectrum warrior etc.

The odd thing is. I can download movie trailers fine, download and install WM player and Direct X fine but not games demos. Other smaller downloads work abosultely - no problem at all.

I've wiped the PC and Ghosted it with a clean, working image from 2 months ago and I'm still having the same problem. This must indicate a hardware problem(?) but I've run out of ideas here. What am I missing here?

Win 2k SP4 (patched to the hilt)
Athlon 2GHz
ATI Radeon 9700 - latest drivers
DirectX 9.0b

Can anybody here please shed some light on this before my PC takes a swan dive out the bedroom window?
