You unpacked the .rar(to a location, or did you just open and view the contents?), you will then need to install it.

I guess you've just stopped anymore support for this problem with that! Not unless it's a demo, though I imagine they wouldn't archive the demo in RAR format if it was.

It depends on the program. If you said I have downloaded Microsoft Office 2003 from xyz.com then yes, because it would be considered a illegal copy.

But can you answer my questions above listers please :D

(y) no problem. Most new users don't read the rules when register or just zip through the registeration.

You can view the rules/guidelines by clicking on Rules on the top right.
