    Do you have Nvidia ActiveArmor firewall installed? A friend of mine was having similar problems where everything he downloaded was corrupt. We finally discovered ActiveArmor (or whatever Nvidia calls their firewall) was the source of the problem.

    Agreed, & 2nd'ing your motion!

    That's been a long noted problem in NVidia's firewall program they ship w/ their chipset drivers & utilities CD's for new systems or mobos.

    (Hopefully, they've fixed it though, by now @ least)
