standard solution to a corrupt file download is to delete it and re-download it. if it got corrupted during the download...you're not really going to have the information available to repair it.

Can you open the RAR file? Are you using the most recent version of Winrar?
After opening the file click the Info button, in the Recovery Record line does it say Absent?

It takes lot of time to download a 2.5 GB file. You should repair corrupt file before extracting it. There is one inbuilt repair tool in WinRAR, which repairs corrupted ZIP and RAR files. steps are:
1. Open WinRAR application
2. Click on file, and then select open
3. A find archive window will be opened, select corrupt zip file from your system
4. Click on open button
5. Press Alt+R
6. Repairing File Name.zip will be opened
7. Click on browse to save repaired file at desired location
8. Check Treat the corrupt archive as ZIP box, and then click OK
9. After corrupt ZIP archive is repaired, click on close.
Those instructions are almost correct but the steps 6 and 8 need to be adjusted to use a RAR file not a ZIP file! also this repair procedure will only work for RAR files if the file includes a Recovery Record.
