    You need winrar. You can pick it up at rarlab dot com.

    I'm new at this, but I think you need to connect your BB to your computer and use the Desktop Manager to load the unrar'd files.

    the files that are unzipped, are they jad/jar files or are they alx/cod files?

    When you unrar the files you should have the option to place them in a particular spot of your choosing (I always pick the desktop). I usually tell it to create a new folder which winrar uncompresses the files into.

    Re: gah! frustrated need help

    ok let's start at step 1
    1) locate your zipped file
    2) right click it and tell it to uncompress it to your desktop (I'm primarily a Mac user so it might be different)
    3) make sure you know where those files are that you just unzipped
    4) identify if they are alx/cod files or if they are jar/jad files and let us know ... the steps are different depending on the type of files from here.
