By the sound of it you can open RAR files (if not z-zip will also decompress them).

I don't believe there is any neat way to fix a corrupted download file, and even if (somehow) you find a way it will take a heck of a lot longer than biting the bullet and downloading it again at some conveniently selected time.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I can't see what "Word 2013" issues have got to do to this post.

Probably a scam downloaded thru the torrents. Regardless of what it is, it will most likely have to be redownloaded. Make sure to delete the one you have 1st, then run CCleaner-Slim before redownloading. Unpack it using PeaZip.

Unless you're on dialup you could probably download it several times before sorting out the problem and fixing the original.

Best to try a download from a different site, if possible. Could the size of the file be part of the problem?

From your Best Answer marking can we assume that this did have something to do with Word 2013 after all?
