Ok this has been happening since I installed my new video card, x850xt.

Ive been getting this error when I try to open some programs "This program has been damaged, possibly by a bad sector of the hard drive or a virus. Please reinstall it." This did not happen before. I have tryed reinstalling but it does nothing. This forces me to reinstall the program, and when I close it, I need to do it again. So far it has happened to me on "fraps" and "du super controller". THis does NOT happen to all the programs I use. Any help is appreciated.

Have you looked to see if there are new drivers for the card, and have you checked to see if those programs have any updates?

EDIT:
Try running Scandisk with all options turned on... After that runs through try it again.

some crap I've posted // LCD Temp Monitor // Eff j00 FDD LED

i would first of all propose that u like the guy proposed...run Scandisk especially with surface scan on (better still if u had norton diskdoctor)...

then if no problem surfaces....u should try unscrolling ur drivers back to the last time u did a whatever they call...u know the last point where u did an XP system restore setup....basically i am just saying run system restore which is located in the accesories folder under system tool....then reinstall the drivers for ur card and see if that works....

actually maxtor has a diagnostic program to scan for bad sectors, just go to their site and find your drives model # and download it.
