I download a lot of stuff in winrar format but i get a lot of files that are corrupted. Is there a free program i can download to repair these files. ? Any help would be much appreciated.

I know its obvious, but make sure your Winrar is the latest version as anything compressed with a newer version than yours will result in a corrupt archive error.

Not that I'm aware of so I guess its just go for a new download.

One other thing though. I had a similar problem using IE7 so I thought what would happen if I used firefox. Answer no problem. Not sure anyone really knows. So try the downloading them with firefox and see if they turn out ok.

it could be that it isnt actually a rar file. Lots of virii are hidden this way. Have a go reparing it and see what happens.
