    so for the past 2 weeks or so all my rars that i download from the sister site are "broken" i downloaded Diva 20 times and every single one didnt work tried all mirrors and everything.

    now that im trying some other software and its still happening but noone else is having problems it must be on my end. ive uninstalled winrar and tried other unzip software nothing is working,.

    has anyone has this problem before and is there a fix??

    Use 7zip, never had a problem but yes, if you have an older winrar version they cant be opened

    1. Make sure you are running the latest stable version of Winrar from rarlabs.com
    2. Virus scanner could be altering files if running.

    7zip is doing the trick! been here for 6 years never experienced this..very odd far as i can tell everything is up todate and no virus scanners are on.

    thanks guys.

    1 other thing to add to this, always get a proper Scene release, they all have sfv files that can easily be checked for anything wrong with the rars , You can use any free app found on the web

    I had same problem until I got the new WinRAR. Unfortunately I deleted some things I thought were corrupted.
    Glad you got it solved.

    Hi @robbieeparker14 , yes it's well-rumoured problem and yes, latest WinRar is the anti-culprit for me.
