Problems Installing Programs

Has anyone  come across an issue where you were unable to install anything on a PC (Windows, WISE and NSIS installers all don't work), downloaded archives have CRC errors (even if they downloaded on other machines and open on them with no problem), and however, all of the existing programs run with no issue? It seems like it might be a corrupt registry key somewhere.
