Windows 7: Halo Combat Evolved Update failure

Halo Combat Evolved Update failure

Hello there, hopefully someone can help me with this.

My problem is, I can't update halo Combat Evolved, the update starts and opens 'chktrust.exe' which proceeds to crash and stops the update. I've searched google and microsoft answers, and the KB articles related to halo, with no luck at all. I even went and bought a new copy of the game and had the same problem. Both copys install and update on my other computer with no problem, which is running win 7 x64. The one I'm having the trouble with is running win 7 home premium x86, it's an eeepc 1201n (dual core atom netbook with nVidia ION). I have had no other problems with the netbook other than this one with halo, other games update fine everything runs great no bluescreens or other crashes, everything is updated and I keep my computers clean and in working order.

The event log for the crash is:

Faulting application name: chktrust.exe, version: 5.131.2134.1, time stamp: 0x37ecb0bf
Faulting module name: ole32.dll, version: 6.1.7600.16385, time stamp: 0x4a5bdac7
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x00029b90
Faulting process id: 0x%9
Faulting application start time: 0x%10
Faulting application path: %11
Faulting module path: %12
Report Id: %13
Thanks for any help anyone can give me.
