CRC failures are usualy caused by either a bad download corrupting the installer, or some kind of virus running on your system altering the downloaded file

You don't need the NSIS application to fix that, NSIS is used for packing up winamp and plugins, it has nothing to do with any downloaded applications.

Try disabling any download manager you might have running.
Try downloading from an alternate location http://www.winampheaven.da.ru
Try running an up to date virus scan on your system.

Read this for further information.
