    I'd ask in the Windows forum on Microsoft Community.

  • This is a brief tutorial of what to do when you come across corrupt .RARs, unfortunately corrupt .ZIPs are useless.

    ^ Download all parts of the achive, Right Click on part1 and click Open
    ^ In WinRar go to Command then click View Files
    ^ Highlight the entire archive, just the archive files, Go to Tools and click Repair Archive.
    ^ Select .RAR and let it work, it won't take long
