I can't download Mountain Lion. It is giving me an error saying, "The product distribution file could not be verified. It may be damaged or not signed". What seems to be causing the problem that won't let me download Mountain Lion?

Sometimes stuff happens. In this case, redownload the update and get on with life.

Redownload? You can't even download to begin with. So redownloadind is not even possible.

So then, you are omitting a lot of relevant information:

Which version of MacOS X/OS X shipped preinstalled on your computer?
Which model Mac do you have?
What other information do you have that might reasonably help us to diagnose your problem?

I'm on 10.7.5. I got it with Snow Leopard but updated to Lion. I repaired it via disk utility and it gave me the path of what's preventing it. Now the question is, if I delete it, it might mess up my computer more coz the file that was deleted might be needed. I want to try and go around without deleting. If all the possible solutions had been done but still no luck, then I guess I have to delete.

It's something in the core services folder. I would have to run disk repair again and see if it still tells me the same thing.
