Well, i just got my new PC up and running. I go into Internet Explorer to download Firefox, I download it, but it is corrupt. I tried again, same thing. I then downloaded another program, downloaded but again, was corrupt. I thought it was an IE bug, but I found Firefox on a disk, installed and then tried downloaded something else. SAME THING! I cannot download ANYTHING, they all finish 100%, but are ALL corrupt! Help!!!!
By the way, I have NOT activated Windows yet. Maybe that is a problem.
Did you try to download files with a download-manager? Some of them control the size of the file to make sure that it isn't corrupt.
It could also be a problem with your connection, make sure that all cables are plugged in correctly.
You may try to ping google, to check for packet loss.
Sounds like a virus to me. Happened to me when I first got my PC 3 years ago.
Go into Command Prompt and type the following:
And post the results. That IP is mozilla.com's IP, but I'm not sure if the downloads are located on that server. Better to check though.
I am certain it isn't a virus. The PC is brand new.
Anyway, Reven, here is that thing.
Try resetting IE advanced tab to default in Control Panel, but first try activating Windows.
I don'y use IE.
Ok, I activated Windows and, IT WORKS! I think, well I downloaded Zonealarm with no trauma's. Hope it's fixed. :)
