View Full Version : Corrupt .cab files



12-03-1999, 12:48 AM
I own a 486DX 4X100 running Win95 with 32M of Ram. The .cab files off my CDs have started throwing up errors such as 'corrupt file' or 'cannot expand .cab file'. This is happening with my Win95, Money and Word CDs. I thought it might have been a fault with the CDROM but I can copy the file to my drive and use it from there, or mostly I can get away with turning the PC off, waiting a minute and restarting. Then everythings fine. The system has checked virus free, I have re-installed from scratch (when I could get the CD to run properly) but this hasn't worked. Any ideas would be appreciated.
