Crc Errors while installing games.

So after a reinstall from have other problems which are now fixed off this install i find myself having new problems with CRC Errors.  While trying to install fallout 3 i get crc error. http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c5/raven201/CrcError.jpg direct link so you can read the error itself.
This isnt the only error i get if i click ignore, more just pop up. Also dose this on a few other games I've tired to install haven't tired all the step below but the games are as followed End war. x3 terran conflict. half life 2. cyris
I haven't taken these steps with these games.  i don't want to have to let lose auto update if i dont have to because everytime now 3 out of 3 times ive had to reinstall vista due to system unable to boot into ANYTHING. I've done MASSIVE amounts of trouble shotting on those topics and i just dont like running updates anymore.
All of those games were installed on this machine before i started to have problems.

Steps I've taken
1 cleaned the disk
2 restart windows.
3 Checkdisk ran.
4 Copy all disk info to hard drive.
5 tested disk on another machine. Worked.
6 set up a network drive via another machine.
7 made an iso on another machine.
8 tested another copy of fallout 3. same issuse.

Hello, Ferfax201

Try running the Memory Diagnostics and ScanDisk to check for memory and hard drive errors.

To run the Memory Diagnostics go to Start, type “memory” in the search box and open the Memory Diagnostics tool. Select your options and restart to run the test.

To run ScanDisk, go to Start, Computer, right click on your hard drive and choose Properties. In the Properties screen go to the Tools tab and click Check Now in the Error-checking section. Select your options and click Start to begin the scan.

We look forward to hearing back from you.
