Question about Computers & Internet
I have tried to install different EXE downloaded progs on a Win 2000 Pro pc, everytime towards end of `unpack` get system message with red dot and cross, "Exec File Corrupted", I dont think its the downloaded progs as one installed fine,
One of the progs is Microsoft SP4 for Win2000.
I think it could be pc as it hasn`t even got SP2 on it,....I tried a self repair of operating system, but it couldn`t find the required sfc/scannow file when I searched pc?
OK, try installing the free winzip program from winzip.com. It is most likely that the files were packed using a version thaqt Microsoft's unzip program just can't handle. It's not that rubust of a program anyway.
Then try unzipping those files with winzip. it should unzip fine without any trouble.
The SFC command should also be on the Windows CD itself as well. Try running the command from the CD drive at a command prompt.
