Benchmark files are corrupted result is invalid
After running PCMark 05 it tells me "System suite must be selected and run to obtain a PCMark score.". When you submit it anyways it tells me error: 4 "Benchmark files are corrupted result is invalid". Does anyone know how to fix this?

Re: Benchmark files are corrupted result is invalid
The first one would indicate that the settings are not default. You have to run the PCMark Suite (including System Suite) to get a score.

Second one indicates corrupted installation. When you submit a score, it also submits hashes of your benchmark files and should those indicate that some file is not like it should, that error comes up. It is a measure to prevent tampering of the benchmark.
As to why the files are corrupt... unfortunately I can only make guesses. Malware on the system? Memory errors? Hard disk errors? Unstable/overheating system? Corrupt installer?
