I'm having problems extracting compressed .rar files, no matter what size they are. I always receive numerous crc errors on every file i try to extract. I have tried WinRar, WinAce, 7-Zip, and Winzip. I have tried re-downloading the files, (theres about 10 of them) and they range in size from 700MB to 6.5 GB. This still doesn't work. I've also ran a memory test with memtest86 and had no problems with my RAM. I've also tried disabling my anti-virus program while downloading them. None of these work. I have a Dell Inspiron and I am running Windows Vista Home Edition.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated, as I have tried everything i know of, and still can't figure out the problem.

Are you sure you are not downloading .iso images? Sometimes a compression program will misidentify an Iso file as a RAR. or zip. Nothing is wrong with these, you would just need to burn them as .iso images.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
