What's the file name?
WinRAR will open pretty much any compressed archive.
ie; .zip .rar .tar

Edit: Actually, if you're running Windows XP you should be able to open them without having to use any third party compression software.

Yes, but as the post points out we don't help illegal file traders wink
Also, the date you reg'd suggests you are new here...

1) I help who I want to help.
2) The account is new, I am not.
3) Dates can be deceiving.

Edit: Come on, don't start this crap, the deed is done, he has been helped, let's move on without a fuss please.

1) As long as you abide by the rules. It's what they are THERE for.

If I don't help with this subject here, I'll do it in private, it doesn't matter, it's only a couple of extra clicks of the mouse .. no biggie.

Edit:

So what .. let's move on.
Can't we all just get along ?
