    Explain "dodgy" download? Not sure what you mean by this though it is easy enough to infer the worst.

    Right off, I would pull the CD-Rom from the case and replace it with another if you have one handy. If not, at the very least crack open your comp case and check your connections to the CD-Rom.

    You should be running an AVS, and you should have current defs for the AVS - run a system scan if you think you got bugged.

    Also, right-click on the My Computer icon, select the hardware tab and remove the CD-Rom from there. Close the window and reboot. If CD-Rom is good it will detect it again.

    Tell me more about this dodgy DL.
