Everytime I try to install software, I receive this error message “You have a corruption of data1.cab file.” I have tried installing several pieces of software, but still get the same error message.

The system files of windows may be corrupted or damaged. Try to do the following procedures:

1. This error happens because of the antivirus blocking some file on the installation source, first disable it. Open a command prompt and type msiexec/unregister and press enter. Now, input msiexec/regserver and press enter. You should now be able to install without worrying for any errors that will occur.

2. This may also be caused by corrupted windows registry.

Try to do a System Restore by pressing Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore. Select a restore point before this error started happening.

3. Make a disk check-up to repair all errors that has occurred in the Windows folder. Do this by going to My Computer. Right click on the disk that contains the Windows files and select properties. The properties dialog will appear now. Click on the Tools tab and click Check NOW button. Another box will appear asking you to select the disk options to be made. Select both the check boxes. This will take effect after you restart your pc. After this checking, you should now be able to install programs again with no errors.

If that always happens every time you install something, try disabling your antivirus temporarily. Your antivirus probably has exclusive access to the CAB file causing the file to be locked and preventing any access to it. When you disable your antivirus, it will also disable the real-time monitoring on the system allowing you to have free access to the CAB file.

If disabling your antivirus did not solve the problem, try running the Windows File Checker utility. Launch an elevated command prompt. Click “Start”, “All Programs”, “Accessories”, right-click “Command Prompt” and select “Run as administrator”. In the command prompt, type without quotes “sfc /scannow” then hit Enter. When you are prompted to insert your Windows setup CD, insert it on your optical drive and continue.

Wait until it is complete then try installing again and see if it works. If that doesn’t fix it either, there is probably something wrong with your Windows installer or the MSI file. Try updating your system to the latest Service Pack. If you have Microsoft Windows XP, download and update to Windows XP Service Pack 3.

This is the latest and last Service Pack update for Windows XP. If you have Microsoft Windows Vista, download and update to Windows Vista Service Pack 2. This is also the latest and last Service Pack update for Windows Vista. If you have Microsoft Windows 7, download and update to Windows 7 Service Pack 1.

This is the latest and only Service Pack update available to Windows 7.
