When trying to execute the Malwarebyte's setup.exe file I get the following "error" message. "These setup files are corrupted. Please obtain a new copy of the program." I originally downloaded the setup file from your Malware and Spyware Cleaning Guide. I then tried to download from Malwarebyte's home page. The setup file does download; however, I get the above error message when I try to install the software. I noticed when downloading the setup file that explorer indicated that the duration and size of file to download is unknown. I have also noticed that lately a process called spoolsv.exe is taking 98-99% of cpu usage.

I am running Windows XP Professional, service pack 3, I have installed all of the Microsoft updates as of two days ago.

Thank you for any advice!

I have been battling malware for the past few days. Mainly redirects in explorer and Google. I also was battling svchost.exe errors at boot up. The svchost.exe errors were occurring before windows login.
I have used various free downloads to remove spyware, malware, virus etc.. I have used spybot, vipre rescue, errorfix etc. I believe I have removed all that I know. However, I wanted to make sure since I have a few minor symptoms that are puzzling to me. Example, Icons on my Notification section of the taskbar sometimes don't show up, even when set to always show; like volume control, laptop power source, mouse etc..
