all different times. What do you think the problem is?

problem with my:
internet
browser
winrar itself
os(vista 64bit)
something else?

wierd is that is that i tried extracted a 300 and 700meg file that i already had on my computer(another hardrive btw) and it extracted fine.

Also I just reformatted.

it does this from multiples sites from different rars. even officail drivers as well.

ran memtest for a few hours. it passed 7 times. i tried doing the eval copy of winrar. still didn't work.

I know this sounds silly but have you tried to re-name the files and drop the rar and change it to mp3? It could be the simple fact that the person uploading was trying to hide the mp3 files and to disguise them as rar files.
