That means you did not recieve the whole file. (It's around 23 megs)

I recommend using a download resumer like Getright or something along those lines if you're on dial-up.

The installer checks the validity of the file with a CRC check when you run it - if even one byte is wrong, it will not start the install. (if gives the "Corrupted file detected" message)

A reason this could be failing is if you have a virus on your computer that is adding some information to the file somewhere along the line.
