I have been unable to extract files from .zip folders that extracted fine on other computers. I installed winzip to see if that worked, and I got the same result. That's problem one.
I have also been unable to install programs such as Autodesk Inventor and AutoCAD. Each time I get the same message: Cabinet file "xxx" is corrupt and cannot be used. The installation terminates. I have tried installing the programs off of the original CD's and by downloading them straight from Autodesk's website. I have tried the CD's on other computers and they work fine. That's problem two.
So basically, is there a reason why I can't extract files? And is there a reason why the system keeps claiming that the cabinet files are corrupt? And what could possibly give me a BSOD after less than a week of having the system?
