operating system : windows xp home edition service pack 1
help me please
it does not appear to be a valid archive for zip file
and file corrupt for exe file
It means that your download is not going through properly. Might be your connection is too slow and the download is terminated in the middle. Or there might be a problem with your browser. Try installing some other browser (firefox for example).
what happen if i use download software such as download accelerator, reget, stream down. can i fix this problem
You should be able to. But the download managers have lot of other problems. Many of them download softwares in pieces and join them later. There are good chances of file getting corrupt. If you are aleardy having problem, don't try it.
Just out of interest, are you using a wireless connection? I came across a similar issue with a wireless setup that I struggled with for some time. Also images in webpages would often appear corrupt. I'm not 100% how I fixed it, but if you are struggling with the same thing I can give you some pointers.
try with download accelator..i think your ie have problem...
i can download completely now
use reget deluxe
still always worth installing service pack 2. obviously make sure u have sufficient backups just incase.
Looks like your downloads were being cancelled automatically m like me when I was using dial-up connection .
you couldve had a piece of software eg. virus scan, which is set to automatically block things without informing you. When file is complete it could be denying access.
mybe its corrupted..or its not valid exe files
maybe something stuppid but is your winzip working?
it can be a part of your problem so check it out
I worked in Tech Support for many years. Convergys to be exact and 3 years. A reboot fixes 99% of all the computer problems out there. If it doesn't reinstall windows will work for sure.
Trust me, the account I worked on was Microsoft!!
