After downloading a program from the net I often get the message the program is corrupt and cannot run. How do I rectify this problem?.

at a guess you're proberly using http to download. sounds like you had a problem downloading part way through. i suggest u use a download manager(preferably spyware free) such as getright, dap or jetcar/flashget(with spyware removed) and use download useing ftp.(resumable downloads so it dosn't matter if it cuts out half way through)

Hi Brian

I can thoroughly recommend DAP (Download Accelerator Plus) for your downloads. It's just amazing how much quicker it can download from several mirrored sites, and it supports 'resuming'. The banner advertising doesn't bother me, I just don't click on them. Go to: http://www.speedbit.com/news/newsregup2.asp

Cheers,
