The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable

Asked By 200 points N/A Posted on -

I downloaded Windows Error Code Lookup Tool from Softonic to look for the Error Code that I encountered a couple of days ago when trying to install Windows 7. But I don’t understand what the error really means.

Does anyone here who knows or have an idea on what is it and how to get rid of it? Thanks.
