hogg files are large and can be corrupted by many things.
if you are have repeated hogg files you will need to look at a number of areas .

1. Some antivirus programs will corrupt the files on download like panda2011 and some have reported the problem with microsoft security esstentials.
2. Weak wireless connection
3. weak CPU
4. bad or failing memory
5. bad or failing hard drive
6. weak or failing power supply (will also affect cpu and hard drives)
7. if using vista or win7 installing the game in the programs file folder will cause problems(not in your case since you are using xp)
8. failing modem or network card.

antivirus program will lock files while scanning and can sometimes not release them. fix is to exlude the game directory from scans.
