Help!!! Computer gurus

I have recently installed win xp with service pack 2 and internet explorer 7 on my amd 64 bit desktop computer. This comp accesses the internet via a 4 port adsl router modem, and while internet access is ok 90% of the downloaded files are corrupted. Even e-mail attachments are no good. I have actually checked the e-mails via web mail and they have been ok but when I do a send & recieve in outlook, most of the time I get garbage. At wits end with this one & the technicians at the local comp store dont know whats going on. If any hints... please chime in. Cheers

Think the pc is ok. only corruption prob is via the email and download. LAN via same modem is ok. This is only a recent installation of 32 bit xp as I was running 64 bit xp but had too much trouble getting drivers. Problem started immediately after new installation. Should note it is not the service provider as all other computers (3 of) are fine through the same router

Yep. Right out of the box. Only 2 weeks ago... thinking it must be some security setting or something. Bit loath to leave it with the comp store techs because it has all my personal stuff on it.

You could do a restore back to the point it quit working if it just quit when installing IE7 it could be a security setting.

Without knowing more about your setup, it's hard to say. But the first thing that comes to mind is are you using any virus program(s) to scan outgoing and incoming email? If so, disable it temporararily, then try sending and receiving and see if you still have the same problem.

amd 3800+ 64 bit. gt6600 nvidia graphics. 2gb ram. 2x hard disk drives 200gb and 80 gb. abit guru motherboard. adsl 4port netcomm +4 router modem. 1.5mb connection. Running win xp sp2 fully updated with internet explorer 7. E-mail via pop 3 server using outlook to send and recieve. think outlook was the first version for xp made. Constantly corrupt downloads of most files via ie7 and e-mail attachments. Seems the only way I can get my emails is to download them from my hotmail account or from my other computer. Have even swiched lan cables and ports on the router
