    I downloaded "something" from Kazaa and it is a RAR file. It is supposed to be a software application. I've never dealt with RAR files before and am not sure how to open it. Anyone can let me know? Thanks.

    Get winace , its a program that will unzip a rar file... a RAR file is liek a Zip file .. i think if you ran a search on "WinAce, you'll find a free DL for it...

    Gah, RAR is the MOST ANNOYING PROGRAM EVER. At least on Linux.

    :bigthumb: RAR is a perfect example of why proprietary software sucks.
