A CRC is an integrity check to verify that the file in OK. If the CRC is bad then the file itself contains errors. Changing the CRC of a bad file just so you don't get a bad CRC error won't fix the file itself.

If you have a file with a bad CRC then the correct solution is to download it again. Not alter the CRC number.
