    rar archive denied opening

    Before I haven't had any problems with rar files. Several days ago, my general rar archive viewed: Invalid or corrupt authenticity information. I tried to unpack archive via WinZip, but it didn't help. How to be in this case?

    Re: rar archive denied opening

    Try uninstalling/reinstalling WinZip.

    Other than that, the RAR file could be damaged.

    Try using Windows built-in ZIP in the future.

    RIGHT-click on the file/folder, "Send To", "Compressed (zipped) folder.
