Getting message saying Windows needs to know who created this file in order to open it so choose a file or windows can go online and find it! Confused or what! When I choose the option for windows to find it goes to internet explorer and nothing happens.

Download Winrar mate

http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm

This will unzip/unrar the file. :)

1. Open the zipped/rared firmware file with Winrar
2. Winrar will open. Click Wizard > Finish.
3. The Folder will be on your desktop and your Firmware file will be in there.

Right click on the file.
If you have an "unzipper" it will give you the option to "Extract Here".

If not, download one(winrar/winzip etc).

Thanks will try that. Although I still haven't got a clue as to what a zipped file/folder is.
Any chance of explaining to me please if its not too long and technical, you see I'm just into looking for stuff and purchasing things from internet, rubbish when it comes to the technical stuff, thats as good as I get with computers :| although I have learned a few things from HUKD website :)

Depending on what version of windows u have, it will have it built in.

Else, get 7-zip

A zipped file is just a compressed file / folder. It takes up less space on the hard drive, and easier to transfer from PC to PC.

Think of a zipped folder as a suitcase with loads of little make-up bags in it then you zip the suitcase up and you have 1 big folder/bag?

Its just a way to store multiple files and folders and make them into 1 file and this in turn compresses them and makes the file smaller in size.

Hope that makes sense? Am sure someone else will explain it better lol.

Start > Right click Computer > Properties.

Under System Type it will say 32bit or 64bit. Download the following for what it says.

WinRAR x86 (32 bit) 4.00
WinRAR x64 (64 bit) 4.00
