    run a test on the archive
    right cilck the file, select winrar>test archive
    probably errors, corrupted file
    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.

    ok, open up winrar, select options>settings>intergration>context menu items
    there you can select what items appear with the right click of a file

    oh yeah, you may have to select "intergrate into windows shell"
    (right above the menu items button)

    Load file up in WinRAR. Select all the files.
    Then go into:

    Commands -> Test Files...

    damn, i was ready to blame it on corrupted files,
    didnt think there wouldnt BE ANY files

    how big is the file?
    if you hold the mouse over it you should get an info popup
    (if ya got windows configured to do so)

    if its only, like, a few kB up to a few hundred kB, maybe even a few MB,
    its no game file

    probably a pr0n dialer if you ever do get it open

    just dump it is what i&#39;d do

    curious, what game?

    its reading at an actual 465MB?
    are you sure its a rar?
    i mean, is it just named in the file "rar",
    or did you check its properties?

    i&#39;m pessimistic about ANY klite d/l&#39;s these days,
    but maybe you could check into it a little more

    go into windows explorer, (or open up any folder),
    select tools>folder options>view>then uncheck "hide extensions for known file types"
    maybe that&#39;ll help, or maybe just right clicking the file and checking its properties
    could maybe tell ya if it actually is a rar

    could be you just need to switch to emule or stick to suprnova
