Corrupt Downloads or Incomplete
So i just reformatted and put windows XP Pro on. Ive got all new Hardware except Hardrive and Ram.

Anyways. Whenever I try to download my basic stuff, like, Winamp, AIM, Firefox, anything that is a program. Ive been able to download MP3s but other then that I just get a essage along the lines of it being a corrupt download or incomplete download when i try to run it. Is this some lame XP protection tat i can turn off? Or something else?

Can you provide screenshots of the error message(s)?

Also, where do you try to download these things from?

The errors are not all the same, There is no specific error number. One install gave me error 1335. Im working on getting a screenshot up, but am having a hard time with just basic windows image programs.

And i am getting them all from reliable sources. Aol.com, Winamp.com etc.

Do you happen to have a motherboard with the Nvidia "activearmor" firewall installed?

This is a chipset feature but the drivers for the firewall can and should be skipped.

Corrupt downloads and https bluescreens are a known issue.

Well I have a A8N-SLI Asus mobo, From what ive been reading, people have been having the same problems. Its either the drivers or the Nvidia firewall. But i dont know how to disable it.

Yeah -- look in Add/Remove programs for something called the Network Access Manager. I think you can uninstall it if present.

If not you may need to reinstall the chipset drivers without the firewall.

Also post a HijackThis scanlog, I believe NAM shows up in it:

O23 - Service: ForceWare IP service (nSvcIp) - NVIDIA - C:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\NetworkAccessManager\bin\nSvcIp.exe
O23 - Service: ForceWare user log service (nSvcLog) - NVIDIA - C:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\NetworkAccessManager\bin\nSvcLog.exe

Download and install HijackThis using the "self extractor". Run it and select "do a system scan and save the log file". Then copy/paste the contents of the log to a reply

Also, this has worked for some:
