Install Error Visual Studio 2008 - Error 1330 cabinet file has invalid digital ginature

I have recently bought and installed Visual Studio 2008 on my work PC and it all went fine.  I have now got a new PC and am trying to install this on the new one but get the following error:

Error 1330.  A File that is required cannot be installed because the cabinet file d:\cab1.cab has an invalid digital signature.  This may indicate that the cabinet file is corrupt.

This seems to be a relatively common fault as it is listed on a lot of forums on Google.  But none of the fixes work.  I have tried from the DVD about 8 times, copied the files direct onto the hard drive and run from there, created an ISO and run that through MagicISO and Daemon tools, and every time I get the same error.  I have read through Heath Stewarts guide which everyone seems to reference and there seems to be no fix.

By the way both machines are running XP.

Any ideas would be very helpful.
