Windows 7: Cannot install software due to corrupt install files

Yes drivers came from OEM Recovery disc that I made up before doing the install. I would have liked to download and install from the manufacturers but I would have no idea which drivers to install myself...

Drivers can be found here: Download free driver for notebook eMachines eME732 (Windows 7, XP, Vista) << DriverPack Solution

Make a System Restore point before installing each driver. When done, use DriverMax to scan and find all outdated and not installed drivers, and install them.

Sorry, also should have mentioned that I did download a new version of my graphics and network (wireless) drivers on another PC and burned the files to CD but I could not get Windows to recognise them as drivers when I tried to update.

Also the drivers that were packed into installers were showing as corrupt even though I had downloaded/burned them from another PC.

I tried installing a Firefox installer that was downloaded from the other PC and burned on the CD as well and it also came up as corrupt at the extraction stage.

That, to me anyway, suggests that the problem definitely lies with something other than firewall/internet/HDD as these installers were from a different source and booted from a CD Dive...

I'd just return the laptop. Something is broken somewhere.

OK I'll redo the Windows install and avoid OEM stuff altogether. Would you recommend deleting partitions and reformatting?

Yes, I recommend you to completely remove everything off the computer one more time. You can use an Ubuntu Live CD and GParted to format everything off the disk, format it as NTFS by the way. Then, install Windows from fresh again. Update it completely in Windows Update. After Windows is installed, DO NOT INSTALL ANY CUSTOM DRIVERS. Go on the internet, and try installing things, such as Chrome, Adobe Reader, MSE, ect. Tell me if the installers work or not.

Slasher thanks a lot. I finally have a working system.

I performed a new install. This time I deleted OEM partitions and formatted the drive. When I finally got Windows up and running I installed the network adapter driver from the manufacturer. I then updated Windows 7 through the Windows Updates which installed the chipsets and graphics drivers for me.

eMachines have wasted a lot of my time with their "recovery" system.

Thanks for all your advice.

Graphics from Windows Update? Well, as long as its working. I'd check Intel's site for the next driver update.

Ur welcome man, anytime. Windows Update generally does a good job updating Intel graphics drivers, but you should check Intel's website for the graphics drivers anyways. If you see any new problems appear or something unusual, just give me a PM or post on this thread. I'll be waiting. Please Rep me to show your appreciation . You should keep the Ubuntu Live CD, as it is extremely useful for solving Windows boot problems, ect.

It is the memory. I just went through this horrible process. Remove one of your memory sticks and magic...it works.
