When I try to install or download something all I get is an error code like the one below.

[/media/cdrom0/StarCraft (Windows).exe]
End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not
a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the
latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
the last disk(s) of this archive.
note: /media/cdrom0/StarCraft (Windows).exe may be a plain executable, not an archive
zipinfo: cannot find zipfile directory in one of /media/cdrom0/StarCraft (Windows).exe or
/media/cdrom0/StarCraft (Windows).exe.zip, and cannot find /media/cdrom0/StarCraft (Windows).exe.ZIP, period.

Yes, I love StarCraft and I am trying to reinstall it ever since I got ubuntu. And yes it is like this for anything I try to install or download.

Please help me.

You're trying to run a Windows program on Ubuntu? Give WINE a try http://www.winehq.org, WINE is not perfect nor is it a 100% drop in replacement for running all Windows applications so if it doesn't work but you really want to use the program but also Ubuntu I suggest you reboot.

http://appdb.winehq.org, here you can see if your application is compatible, but you could try anyway even if it isn't listed. If it does work, post your experience there.
