at times when you unistall some tihng its advisable to run a cleaner that way it gets rid of any thing you might of left behind during you r uninstall.

as for it being corrupt its possible you may have unzip a bad file it may have had effect on your winrar so if you have any adaware scanners run them as well

Does this happen with all your .rar files, or just one in particular?

And you have the most current version of WinRAR (3.51 stable or 3.60 beta)? Strange, this error is reported when the file you are extracting is bad.

Not all spyware will be found by even the best antispyware apps.

If you want to be checked for malware, please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
