up to you if you save/run i usually run it. it will say that due to not recognizing the company, i promise you its safe tho you can scan it for your concern.

once installed just drag and drop the rar into the box and itl open and show the files.

easy!

if there is a problem try ectracting again if that doesnt work may mean the file itself may be corrupted.

Maybe they're corrupt or missing part of the archive.

not sure then, ive used this program for around a year and only experienced that when either corrupted or passworded, may i ask what the file type is? ( video,pictures,game )

You could try to decompress the file with 7-zip. This can be downloaded from 7-zip.org

and it is first and second part of one file - so I quess I need somehow to put them together and try to open them again

I guess this is the answer
Yes! The 17 ".part1-17.rar" RAR files together form a multipart RAR archive, which you can not extract partially. Splitted RAR archives are usually used if the space on the medium is limited. If so e.g. a large 531MB RAR archive as a download and there are only a few MB of webspace at different hosters available, one creates a splitted archive, consisting of 17 parts, that is put back together after the download.
If you have downloaded all 17 ".part1-17.rar" RAR files, and placed them in the same directory, it is sufficient to double-click the file with the extension ".part1.rar" to start the unrar process (if RarZilla or a similar program is installed).
All other files, e.g., the ".part17.rar" RAR file, will automatically be found and unpacked.
