A CRC (Cyclic Redundancy Check) error will occur when you try to run a file that did not finish downloading OR did not download correctly. A virus infection is also a possibility. CRC checks are performed to ensure the integrity of files. If it was a download, try downloading the installation file again. I have also had this happen to a file on a floppy that had worked before. Replacing the file is the only remedy I know of.

Thank you for your reply, Reid. I am still encountering the same problem after downloading the same progam a few times. This is happening to my ICQ download.
As for another program I downloaded, I got an illegal operation message and had to shut down even though I tried downloading a few times. I ran a virus scan on my system and no virus was detected. These are only 2 examples of programs I could not install. There are a few more programs when I tried installing them, I get many different kinds of error message. What could be wrong?

You might try downloading the files from a different source, unless they are already from a few different places. A search engine like Google (http://www.google.com) should find another site if you search for the program's name. Paste in a couple of the URLs that you are trying to download from, in a reply, or e-mail them to me. Pick a couple of the smaller files.

I have seen posts in other places that say using GetRight (http://www.getright.com/) for downloads helps reduce the chances of getting CRC errors.

Juliet attached a file that was giving the CRC errors when trying to install it. The McAfee virus scanner in Hotmail found that it had the "W95/spaces.1445 virus", and would not download it since it could not be cleaned. I sure didn't want it at that point anyway http://www.PCGuide.com/ubb/smile.gif

I recommended that she install an anti-virus program. Computer Associates (http://http://www.cai.com/registration/) has a free download for personal use.

Here is the corrected link: Computer Associates free download (http://antivirus.cai.com/).

The other link had an extra "http". This new link goes right to it, rather than requiring an extra click from the other link (if it had worked).
