Can you be more specific regarding the content please. The forum rules state that we will not assist with Software piracy and this extends too to pirated music files. If this is copyrighted material that you have illegally downloaded, then sorry we will not help.

Bitzipper should open rar files without a problem.

Like Markb says, it sounds like you are downloading something of dubious content. If it is illegal, then quite simply you shouldn't be doing it! Even so, unless you are downloading from a reputable place (and the fact it is a rar file, suggests it is probably not), then chances are anything you download could be full of malware - this is where a large proportion of malware infections come from.
