hi guys

ive recently had some video tutorials sent to me,but they all come as rar.html files. when i open them it seems to just come up with all these number and letters on my firefox screen. they are split into 7 parts and each part consisting of at least 95mb.

i was just wondering if anyone could help me out on viewing these files. they are important video tutorials.


any help i would greatly appreciate it

Rename to just filename.rar

Also obviously make sure you have WinRAR installed :)

That would be because either:
1, it still is retaining the .HTML file extension (even though you are renaming it - if you are hiding the extensions from explorer, you are only modifying the first part of the filename)
2, the .rar extension is associated to FireFox (maybe you forced it to associate?)

Go into your folder options and go to the "view" tab and untick "hide extentions for known file types", then go back to your file and when you rename, all you have to do is drop the .html extention and you're golden.

Bro, couldnt find your aussie digits to text the solution :D

Thats because it has a .html extension

rename the files and change the extension/file type to be .rar
