For example if you are using MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials) that little green icon should be red indicating that it is not scanning downloads and other files.
Such realtime programs can affect downloads and even inserting a flashdrive.

as torrent has its own hash check for each 'part' preventing wrong data/files being build.
but MS probably doesn't like torrents....

6:36:19 PM 8/13/2012 Checking if download is malicious (see options to disable this) 6:36:21 PM 8/13/2012 OK, FDM's users did not report that this download is malicious 6:36:21 PM 8/13/2012 Starting download... 6:36:21 PM 8/13/2012 Redirecting... 6:36:21 PM 8/13/2012 Redirection succeeded. Opening new URL . . .I tried running FDM on my VM (VMware Player running W7 x64) and it barely worked at all (indicating 4-8 hours DL for a 15 minute file). Thanks and enjoy, John

I did not wait for the file initialization to complete. Once completed, the DL went just fine under a VM (100% Maximum DL speed). Enjoy, John.

EDIT: I have no evidence of bad DLs on any other file(s).

The problem remains UNRESOLVED. I have DLed the file many times using FDM and it has the wrong SHA-1 most of the time. I am tired of DLing and I am sure the MS server is also, so I give up now that I have a valid copy. Any thoughts would be much appreciated. Thanks and enjoy, John.
Sorry if I missed it upthread, but are you downloading from a web browser? There is / was a problem in Opera resulting in random bad downloads.
If you are using Opera I will elaborate.

I have an ASRock MB and it contains a Broadcom NIC (in fact, two) - Broadcom NetLink Gigabit Ethernet. Drivers are most recent released by ASRock. Thanks and enjoy, John.
which network card do you use?

Thanks, xpclient. I DLed NetTransport ,installed (on a VM), took all defaults and DLed the W8 RP. SHA-1 was correct - first try! The "Max concurrent tasks" was set to 10, but I saw only two connections (TCPView). The DL speed was somewhat less than my ISP speed (25 minutes vs 15 for FDM). I then went over to HW and DLed the file using FDM (20 sections-like threads, I think) and got a correct SHA-1 also. I need to do some more testing, but I am beginning to think it is a server load problem. These two tests were done on Saturday (8-18-2012) between 6:02 AM and 6:59 AM CST USA. In NetTransport I don't see a way to disable Torrents and $30 is a lot for this application, although it looks more sophisticated. Thanks and enjoy, John.
@OP, I used NetXFer (NetTransport) btw and max. download connections=1 setting.
EDIT: Just did two more DLs, both with good SHA-1 codes, about 10:30 AM Saturday. On VM NetTransport with 10 threads (ran almost at ISP speed) and FDM on HW. I will try again on Monday.
EDIT: Two more DLs on Monday went fine. Whatever the problem was it is no more.
