    Please I am cross posting to as many forum I can find as this error wont go away, Thank you for any help you can provide me :cool:

    If i ever download over 200MB exe,rar,zip

    This includes

    Broken up files in my download manager

    after taking 8hours I downloaded the chromedemo20030810_en.exe from some Spanish site at an average of 50kb with multiple sources in my download manager. And of course I got a CRC error. I put this down to the file being corrupted from being broken up in the manager so I used windows to download it again from ausgamers.com, I downloaded it in under 30mins at the full speed off 166kb without one break in the download only to find ANOTHER CRC ERROR!!!

    My RWIN is in this screenshot, but since i have installed a new OS this isnt really relevent. http://www.users.on.net/n00b/files/rwin.JPG

    This system is clean I just installed windows.
    No Overclocking
    The system is 30C
    There are no firewalls
    I AM LOST.


    And guess what every time I download the file this being the third time it CRC failed in different spots! Each extraction of the same file will cause the same error however. But this time the same file on different systems caused a different error, either I have more than one problem, or I have lost my mind.

    Notes on things it is not…

    Hardware transmission loss - maybe
    OS installs

    Things it might be…

    Ram gone bad
    Network Transmission
    Honestly I cannot think!
    The file I am downloading is stuffed, but this would not cause the file to give me different errors.

    Sorry if it doesnt make since I copied some of my posts from other forums. Thankyou.
