    I have a download that consists of a single rar file of about 23,500 KB. When I run it through WinRar I get the "no files found" error message. I don't know much about Winrar, I use it a lot but so far haven't had to work things out. I'm "two star" tech saavy, and haven't picked up much from the documentation I've read, and nothing I've found has helped with this problem. Can someone tell me what is going on (english preferred) and/or whether there's a fix?

    Many thanks!

    I've had it happen to me a few times because the file size was too big apparently for WinRAR to handle and an apparent file corruption too.
    I had to use 7zip or PZip to get me what I needed out of the file.
    So I suggest using either 7zip or Pzip. Both are free.

    The 7zip extracted it fine, thanks (I'll keep it) but it extracted an Application file. This should be a magazine. Is there something else I should be doing?
