That's an odd error, but no, you do NOT need a new computer, don't worry. I'd try downloading the installer from anouther source, say, They should have it. It's most likely the file didn't download properly, or the download on Apples side is corrupt. it's nothing major to worry about, just keep trying.

yeah, trying a different source might be a good idea. i'v never had this problem, my itunes program updates itelf every now and then on it's own. do you have itunes already on your computer or is it your first download of it?

its also worth remembering that itunes is a larger file than most, and will take ages to download - i have a reasonably fast connection and it still takes 10-15 minutes for it tp download to me.

please don't buy a new computer though. its not a problem with your cpu.

Was it a win32 error? and also you need to give them your credit card details if you want an itunes account.
