    I tried to download 'Hi Jack this', which seemed to go ok. When I clicked on the 'Hi Jack this' icon on the desktop, a winRAR diagnostic message appeared saying 'either multipart or corrupt ZIP archive'? I can then break operation, copy to clipboard or close.

    I have no idea what to do? I don't think that any of my zip files work because the same error msg appears every time!!!!

    If anyone can help that would be great?:(

    Try using WinZip to see if you get the same problem

    A nice free zipper that also handles .RAR files is ZipGenius (the site appears to be down right now).
