Amazing.
Looks like too many useless extra features and bloat is causing a problem. Time to go open source I think.

This needs to be got around to all the peeps, P2P, usenet, general surfing, legal or illegal.

winrar is everwhere.

imagine what damage could be done on say TPB or the like if a dodgey .rar or set of got out into a swarm with as yet no known limits of impact on the effected comp
