Default Having trouble opening .rar file

sponsored links

Okay, so first of all, I wan to point out that I'm not extremely familiar with this process. But I've read a few things on the internet and found a freeware program that extracts .rar files, so I said what the heck.

So I download the program, it's called 7-zip file manager. I download a couple torrents(risky, I know) and I try to extract them. The extraction is successful, but then anytime I try to open up any of the files, Microsoft Word just lists a bunch of random numbers and letters instead of English text.

So have I done something wrong, or is this a common occurence when getting random files of the web?

To be honest, you cant beat win-rar, search google and download a trial, extract the contents of your download and if you get the same problems then you know youve got a dodgey download. Thanks
