everything i download and try to install is corrupt

can anyone help me with this? i bought an hp pavilion, it has windows 7 ( 64 bit ). everytime i download anything and try to install, it says it is corrupt and unknown author. i also had to buy a zoom usb 56k dialup modem, because your computer does not have a dialup modem in it.

Hello Ganana54,

 

There are 100's of different models of the pavilion line. Can you list which specific model you are using?

 

What anti virus software are you using?

 

Try temporarily disabling the software and attempt to download one file that you know is safe, does it successfully download and install?

Hello Ganana54,

 

It could be the dial up modem you are connecting to. I assume you don't have a way to connect your computer directly to the internet without going through a peripheral?

 

Also when installing programs from a CD on the computer does the same issue come up?
