For the last few days, I have tried to download some simple applications from the web. Unfortunately, I broke down and bought an Android Tablet for myselft, (the wifey gets the ipad II) and I am trying to get some file transfer applications between the tablet and my mbp. Dropbox, doubletwist, etc. Everytime I try to download any of these applications for my macbook, i get the error message that the application cannot be opened due to it being damaged or incomplete. I was expecting the problems to be with the Android tablet, not my Mac! Could this be due to the terrible bandwith im working with right now? (Less that 1 mbps) Or could this be a bigger issue with my mbp? Im running Lion on a 13".

That seems pretty invasive. Am I really the only one who has expierenced this problem? ( I searched to forums) And is wiping my HD really needed? There has got to be a better way.
I had though I posted a reply to this but it's not here.
If you are using WiFi then connect the MBP to your router with a Ethernet cable and turn WiFi off. Then do the download. If it is still being corrupted then it is something on your MBP. Especially if other devices in your home can download files without then getting corrupted.
If you are now using a Ethernet cable connected to your router then unplug it and switch to WiFi for the download. Does that also get corrupted? If so then again it is something on your Mac that is causing it.
