    It seems that almost every time I download a file over 300MB, it is corrupted when I try to use it. This mostly affects zips, rars, and game demos, so I imagine it might have something to do with compressed filetypes. I get the errormessage saying that the files are corrupt, and to try downloading it again. So I do, from the same location, and then from another location. Same problems. I just ran Ad-aware, Spybot, and SpySweeper, but the problem has persisted.

    It's just downloaded files that don't work, and seems to be limited to compressed files (but that may just be because you don't often download anything bigger that's not in a rar).

    I figure someone's going to ask for a HijackThis log, so here you go:

    Just thought it was worth a try, you might also check out a disk burn-in test to make sure they're not getting corrupted by marginal disk interface issues. I like to eliminate the hardware issues before I chase my tail looking for phantoms. :)
