    Recently I have been trying to download trial versions of video editing software. With two of them the download finishes, but when I run the installation process I am informed that some of the downloaded files are corrupt. I have sought help on the relevant help forums but am always told to keep repeating the downloads until the installation finally works. I have done this many times (with my anti-virus on and off) but without any luck. The third trial downloaded successfully (like the others) but when I click on the application in order to install it, nothing happens. There is obviously a problem on my computer but I don't know what it is.

    One program is Cyberlink PowerDirector 10, the second is Corel Video Studio and the third is Avid Studio HD. I use DAP (Download Accelerator plus) for the downloading. I downloaded all three from their official sites.

    I have just found the problem. When recalling the software I had downloaded recently I realised that I had downloaded SuperAntiSpyware while trying to solve a different problem. After removing it from startup I found that I was able to download and install PowerDirector 10 without a problem. I am more than a little embarrassed!

    Yes. After removing it from Startup I had no trouble installing all of the trials.
