Default CRC failed in...corrupt file

This problem came up since a short time: I D/L some rar files , some files stop in the middle and for the rest every second file is corrupt.Error CRC failed in.. corrupt file.
This happens in winxpsp2. Now I have a dual boot with also winme on it.
When I D/L the same files in winme there is no problem at all .
I use flashxp on both OS.
I runned already a memtest for 24 hours without any error.Anybody a suggestion what to check now ?

Default Re: CRC failed in...corrupt file

well, i would try this little test, and see if it solves yer prob. after you down load the file, scan it w/your anti-virus....unless you have this turned on by default.

then, right click the .RAR file & rename it to .ZIP ....see if that helps...could be that the file itself is corrupt, this would explain it stopping mid-way.

Default

that is just the point, I down load the same file in winme (dual boot)
Here it doesn't stop and I can down load all the files without one corrupt!

in winxp every second file is corrupt and a few stop halfway! (if I down load the same files!)
