Can't Get Game File to Work--Help!

Okay, so I downloaded a game: it's in .RAR format, but when I try to open it, I just get a message that the archive is either unknown or damaged. Does anyone know what I'm supposed to do with these files? I have two of them, both of them the same game, and both behave the same way.

Fastrack is the network , that kazaa client connects to, widely known to be polluted with fake / corrupted files like you just experienced.In additions kazaa contains loads of adware & spyware inside.

Recomendation , change network and client of choice.
Preferably bittorent or ed2k.

Here you`ll find what you need:

It's probably damaged, or has a virus, or both, or it's about to self-destruct.

Advice: STOP USING KAZZAA. :)

If BitTorrent and eMule is too complicated for you, you might like to try Shareaza.

However, if you think you can figure out BitTorrent and eMule, you'll be much better off because both contains either more files or faster speeds. :)

Either way, Kazaa is closely associated with the RIAA monitering the network heavily along with corrupted files, viruses, trojans etc. Either way, the network that client connects to is not secure in any way and users should not use the program OR network.

I had a friend who was using Kazaa Resurrected and I more or less made him switch over to one of the mentioned clients (Shareaza) and he was completely dumbfounded at all the results and having to deal with less junk on the network. Once you use another network/client, you'll never look back - trust me on that one. :)

Actually Ares is the best choice for you now. Check it out. The interface is simple and great for mp3 singles. Great speeds too. (Went over 350kB/s a few times for me, and I hardly use it :P ). Its easy to use and a great place to start for p2p beginners :D

Agreed Tom :roll:

Almost tempted to lock but hope this can teach others to stay away from Kazaa!!

Ares is allot like Kazza GUI, well not really but basic same functions. And also has great speeds, I suggest you try it.
