HP Printer - corrupt drivers

I am now baffled - have 2 HP printers - OfficeJet and Colour laserjet.
The office jet installed with absolutely no problems and even has full function - scan fax etc. Was picked up immediately and software/drivers installed automatically.
HOWEVER - my HP CLJ 1600 is picked up in Devices and PRinters but no drivers install. I have tried 3 times to download and install HP drivers but each time i try and extract the file it says the file is corrupt and extraction failed!
I have tried numerous things - and once it was installed, showed as device working properly but wouldnt print - no test page, no documents etc. I removed it in control panel and tried again - no it shows as an unspecifed device!

Help please......

Did you get the printer software from HP Color LaserJet 1600 Printer- Download drivers and software - HP Business Support Center ? They seem to have the latest set of drivers (2007).

Also, check out this thread on IT Resources Center and see if it helps: IT Resource Center forums - Network Print Problem on HP Color Laserjet 1600
