Default big problems please help

it's been a while since i've been here but i need some help guys. SO recently we got dsl, let me rant about it for a bit. we pay for 1.5mbps, the fastest dl i ever got was 161kbps, while trying to watch vids online like on ebaumsworld or youtube, they'll randomly stop playing, even though it's buffered WAY ahead. But the real problem = I cannot install anything i've downloaded. Every installer, be it AIM, drivers for my graphics card, any drivers or programs basically, it says that the installer is either corrupt or incomplete. I thought it was a windows issue so i reinstalled windows, but i still have the problem. what gives?

Corrupt installations are common, you can either redownload them or get them from another site. Alot of people use MD5 checksums now, this allows you to compare the file you should have to the one you have got.
