That usually means the installer has been corrupted. I can think of three things that might cause that:
1. virus or other malware
2. bad memory
3. bad storage device (hdd/ssd/cdrom drive)
What games are you trying to install, and from where?

You still didn't answer where you're installing them from. If you downloaded bootleg copies, that carries a high risk of viruses/malware, and I think it would be against the rules for me to help you with installing them.

I don't understand the part about "deleted recently", and perhaps you could elaborate on what tune up utilities you ran.

Please don't bump posts, especially only 3 minutes after your previous post. It's not reasonable to expect me to reply to you that fast.

Deleting/uninstalling a bad tune-up utility doesn't eliminate the problems it caused with your registry etc. Your best option is to back up any personal data you have on the machine, then use the laptop's install disc to completely clear the hard drive, then reinstall Windows. After that, the game installers might work.

A borrowed dvd-rom sounds worrisome. It could be a bootleg copy without you realizing. Also, I hope you made sure your friend didn't leave the game installed on his/her system, otherwise installing it on yours would be violating the license terms.

CRC checks are going to be because either the disk you are reading from is damaged and has errors or the disk you are writing to is damaged and has errors being written to it.
