Everytime I go do a fresh install of windows it gives me this error 0x80070241 and says some of the files may be corrupt.
I dont see how that is possible though because I just got my Windows 7 disc yesterday.

Assuming the Media is good and the DVD drive can read the disk correctly, then the fault is as so often it is in these cases, is problem memory. Windows 7 is very critical of memory and on a system that can run Windows XP or LINUX without problem may fail when running Windows 7. Run memtest86 for at least three passes to test the memory.
