XP won't let me install anything

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I just installed XP Pro on my computer. It will not let me install anything. I haven't been able to install firefox or my nvidia drivers. It says the files are corrupted. I tried to re download them, with the same results. I cannot install office XP either. I am getting similar results.

When you formated did you choose "quick". If so, that could be causing the problem.

Just reformat, and take the "long" route.

If that doesn't work, make a bootable floppy of Deriks Boot N Nuke.
