WinRAR/WinZIP help?

I recently downloaded Winrar, but it will only download Winzip files. Can anyone help me?

RE: WinRAR/WinZIP help?

It's hard to know what to do without knowing exactly what happens, but it sounds very odd if WinRAR fails to do pretty much its only job. You might try http://www.7-zip.org/ instead. Freeware instead of shareware and makes a nice little lightweight file browser.

WinRAR's job is to unpack .rar and .zip files; if it can't do that, I suspect something is wrong on your end.

I exclusively use WinRAR, myself, but I've heard good things about 7-zip.
