Hi, LazyFunker, and welcome to the forums.

Is it possible that your antivirus is preventing you from getting infected by deleting malicious files?

uhm... I had bitdefender before (total security) but i uninstalled it totally and no prosessors are running that can lead to that.

And no, or well. It was only a game(ra3) that the setup.bat got deleted. And now i cant even download stuff like bluebadge :S
Atm im downloading vista so i can double boot and try to download it from there! Thanks for the quick responding also

I have never had such a problem with any of my downloads (and I downlaod some nasty stuff for testing Malwarebytes Anti-Malware with). So, I am not sure why this is happening to you....

How are you viewing the .ZIP files?

I use WinRAR and have always used it. When i extract them winrar just say that its no files to extract. But when i double click the file it opens in winrar and all tbe files that are there but when i then extract them it stands that no files to extract. I can try to use 7-zip and check if that works.

Hello, now i used 7-zip and it works now, but thanks for the help anywayz
