Re: windows vista - ... .exe does not work properly

Posted: 01-02-2009, 11:09 PM

I too am having this problem. I have seen several posts on severa
different forums, none with an answer. I am running Vista Home Basic o
a Dell Inspirion. On Monday 12/28/08, the computer began acting strange
resulting in my attempting to download several updates and programs
none of which would install. I have reinstalled using the factor
restore setting, and completely reformated using the installation DVD
however the problem still remains. Additionally, my laptop which i
running Win 98 also began showing the exact same symptoms: intermitten
connection problems, Acrobat Reader not working, AVG 7.5 not working
will not run any downloaded programs. All downloaded programs giv
different error messages, but several say the file is corrupt. Thi
continues AFTER reformatting both computers. Originally I though
perhaps I had a virus, but a Kapersky scan showed no problems. That i
the only program I have been able to run successfully. The only thin
the two computer have in common is my cable modem and wireless router
So is the modem or router possibly corrupting the files somehow

We'd love to help you but unfortunately no one knows what the "same problem"
is. This is because you are not posting on a real forum as you think you
are and you didn't quote any of the thread to which you are replying. You
are using a web interface that leeches Usenet posts and most of the rest of
us are using real newsreaders. We don't see what you do. If you want to
participate in Usenet, the better way is to set up a newsreader. This is
very easy to do and I'll give you information about that below. If you
prefer to use a forum, then here are two excellent ones:

http://forum.aumha.org/index.php
http://http://computerhaven.info/

Since you are using a web interface, you may not realize that this is really
a newsgroup. You will get far more out of this resource if you learn to use
a newsreader. There are many good newsreaders for Windows, but you can use
Outlook Express (XP) or Windows Mail (Vista) since you already have it.
Here are some links to information about newsgroups:

In my case the problem turned out to be an issue with my ISP. I foun
this out only after reformatting both my desktop and laptop and fiv
days of intense frustration! Thus my advice is to first contact your IS
and see if they are aware of any download issues in your area (mine wa
and was "working on the problem")
