I have recently installed a copy of Windows 7 home premium 32 bit and it has been nothing but a headache since I got it.
The biggest issue that is absolutely killing my computer has to do with file downloads. When I download a program, installer, zip file, etc, the file gets corrupted at some point during the transfer making it unusable. I do not believe this is a problem with my network, as I have a linux computer and my roommate has a Windows 7 computer as well, and neither have this problem. I never once had this issue while I was running Windows XP. Here are the installers that either fail to launch, or give me a file corrupted error message when I try to install them: gmax, pidgin, openoffice 3.1, Microsoft Expression studio, Adoble Flash player 10, Mozilla Firefox, Steam and more.
I have connected my computer directly to my modem and I am still experiencing these issues. Can anyone provide any kind of insight to what would cause this and what could fix it?
