Specs: Windows XP
Does anyone know how to unzip files from Filesmonster? When I download the files there are 3 wmv files and a zip file. When I try to extract them it always says files are not there or corrupt.

This is the message received once the IP address changes:
Your IP address has been changed. Multi part archive can be successfully unpacked ONLY when ALL it's parts are downloaded from the same IP.
Start download again

This makes it effectively impossible to download multi-part files from Filesmonster since the IP address is usually automatically changed every 24 hours.

The Filesmonster site is just a complete waste of time unless you pay for membership!!

You can't open the .zip file with Winzip?

I am using the zip extraction wizard on windows. Do I need a winzip or winrar to do it properly?

The windows extractor should work but it wouldn't hurt to try winzip or one of the other compressed file extractors. However, my guess is it's a corrupted file.

Apparently filesmonster deliberately discourages free users by forcing them to download from a single IP address. If the IP address changes or is deliberately changed to avoid the 45 minute waiting time between downloads the file format is slightly modified making it impossible to join the parts. I don't know how to get around this
