i can use xp sp2 with DSL modem, and for the last couple of days i have been trouble downloading files. internet itself works fine. but now, when i download a .exe files of any size and try to run than a msg shows that corrupt files or try to download another copy and i again and again do this but again i downlaoded the corrupt file. i use internet explorer 8. i have 1.50 gb of ram. i have run a virus scan with avira license version, and no viruses were found. i have tried to hook up the modem to a different computer, but there is no problem of the downloaded files. i have also reinstall my operating system, also no good. i have deleted my temporary files, still nothing. so nay help you can give me would be appreciated. as i said my modem works properly.

ravisaini1009, sounds like you've done ALMOST everything. One thing I'd try is a worm/trojan remover. Be aware that a virus and a Trojan are similar, but not the same. Many times, an AV detects one it can't clean, other times, it gets missed entirely.
If you need to clean one, Superantispyware can do the job and you can get it free @:

among other places. They have a Vista compatible version if needed.
If it turns out that you need to use it, be sure to update prior to running and disable 'restore' (restart after cleaning) so it doesn't get put back. They just released a new update recently and it changes all the time. Things are in a constant state of flux.
The restore thing is critical. May not be your deal at all, but won't hurt anything to try.
HTH.

You must have a choppy internet connection. try to see if re downloading it might help but it might end up with the same results so try to see what is the problem with the internet first.
