I have a brand new Gateway Netbook that I just got yesterday. It is 32 bit and the operating system is windows 7 home premium edition. I just started adding programs to it and as I was trying to add winrar, I got the following message....."some installation files are corrupt. please download a fresh copy and retry the installation". what the heck does that mean? :) I tried refreshing the page and starting over but got the same message. I had winrar on my old computer (which was an XP) and had no problems. I don't use it often but would like it there in case I ever happen to need it. Any suggestions on what to do?

Glad to see you figured it out. Thanks for letting us know and don't be embarrassed as it happens to all of us at least once. :) :) :)
