Recently my brother kicked my computer made it crash and shut down. Now it always crashes and restarts by itself about 10-15 times a day. Everytime i try to download something from the net i ALWAYS get corrupted downloads. I've tried to redownload it and download it from other sites and still got corrupted, so i know its something with my pc. I have no spy/adware, have ran Spysweeper and Spybot. Ran Norton AV so i have no virus. Ran Norton Disk check so i have no errors on my hd. Do i just need a new harddrive? Or something else? How can i tell what i need? Thanks for your help

hmm it getting kicked and that may have caused any kind of damage.
hard drives alone shouldent be moved when the pc is on untill the heads are parked.If the pc was'nt on then it may not be the h/drive.A thoughdisk scan should show faults for that.
Motherboard could be another one, was it kicked on the side with the m/board? if so that could have done some damage. card jolted out a bit? if its none of them it could be ur system resorces getting strained to the max for whatever reason and the file is corupt because of that. i had that on my old pc. hope its ok ur pc and that.

he kicked it in the front, and the harddrive is directly behind it, so it mostly likely is hard drive problems..that might explain why i keep getting corrupted downloads
