I am using WinXP SP3 with a dial-up connection. Yesterday I downloaded Emsisoft Emergency Kit with Free Download Manager. It took about 12 hours, but this morning, I could not open the file. 7zip comes up with "Can not open file 'C:\EmsisoftEmergencyKit.zip' as archive". Simply doubleclicking the file generates the message "The Compressed (zipped) Folder is invalid or corrupted."
So I bit the bullet and re-download it today. It increased in size by about 200K, but downloaded in just under 7 hours. Assuming that not being able to complete the download before the file gets updated is causing the corruption; and as I am on a time limit with my ISP and cannot afford to upgrade my connection to broadband, is there a mirror available that would allow a complete download without interim updates? I only have one more shot at this before I run out of connection hours for a while. If I could get a viable copy downloaded, I could immediately run the update function to bring definitions current.
Or is something else causing the corruption? FDM?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
