    Ok. Now I'm lost. I downloaded the 7zip. I have 4 different rar files that I downloaded to my desktop and then found out I couldn't open them with my windows unzipper. Now, I don't understand how to open the rar files to extract the files inside. When I click on them they say windows can't open them. It lets me select a program to open it with but the 7zip isn't listed (nor is the regular zip extractor). I went into 7zip but couldn't figure out how to bring the rar file in to un-rar it? Any help?
    If winzip or 7zip does not come up as a choice, you will have to browse for the program in your files.
    Also rather then clicking on "open" file, try right clicking on it, drop down and 7zip should be listed as a option.

          I found a free program called WinRar on the net that worked great to open a RAR file.

                You did great! And love your picture avatar. I like seeing people's faces. I might have to get a picture of me on mine. I've tired of looking at that big, round, bug-eyed avatar. But then no one would recognize me LOL! Can't wait to see more of you on the threads. Welcome to the "fun house".
