If you can, try the following:
This Requires someone with a working copy of STO
1) Copy the working version of STO to a Flash drive or DVD and copy it to the PC having issues.
Does this solve the issue ?
If it does, then it's a connection issue when downloading the game files. (contact your ISP and ask for a line check as you could have a build up of line errors - this manifests itself more with large downloads)
If the Game still doesn't Run / Install or option (1) is out the question ?
Run a memory check diagnostic program to see if your memory is healthy
Run a CPU diagnostic program to make sure your CPU is working properly
Run a HDD diagnostic program to ensure your drive isn't on the way out
Run a GFX card diagnostic program to make sure the card isn't on the way out or overheating
Let us know what the results were.
If there's 100 million PC's out there & 1% have a device failure, that's 1million PC's up the duff! Chances of more that 50% of STO users with an unknown PC issue? Higher than you'd imagine!!
