    Hi. I have downloaded a legal program but don't understand how to install it. The instructions said to extract the rar file which I've done but no joy. The instructions seem to assume some knowledge! I have the following files: an nfo file, 21 files named *.r00, *.r01 etc, an sfv file and a rar file which I have extracted...there are now a bin file and a cue file in an extracted files folder. What on earth do I do next? Please can someone help me with step by step instructions for a complete dummy !! Thanks.

    Hello Rubi. I am a little confused with what kind of file you want help with so I am providing the instructions regarding the *.bin and *.cue files.

    How Do I Use or Open Bin, Cue, or ISO Files?

    If you are looking for instructions on extracting the *.rar and *.r01 files, then please go here.

    Hope that helps. :)

    Welcome to TSG, Rubio.

    I'm a little confused myself. Can you tell us anything else about this program?

    I'm just curious what program comes in separate rar files and contains a nfo file? I know a lot of illegal programs from torrents or newsgroups do, but I didn't know that they came that way legally also.

    You've downloaded that file from a file-sharing site.

    I have to wonder if your computer is infected from downloading and installing files from dubious sites.

    Can you post a HijackThis log here?
