When I go to MtS2 and try to DL a skin it shows up in the download folder as
a media file.I went to live chat there at MtS2 and asked for help, one
person said I'm having problem with my extractor,I use the windows extractor
to un-zip. Any help would be great.
(my OS is windows XP)

Go get winzip for zip files and extract now for rar files.
of course, extract now may work for zip too, but I just prefer winzip :)

winzip is not really free, but more like it nags you until you buy, if ever.
extract now is a free program

Extract Now does work for zip files though I think I prefer Winzip too.

It might be a problem with file associations with the file type (zip)
associated with a media programme rather than the zip programme. The
original poster could try right-clicking on a file, choose 'Open With' and
then select an appropriate programme from a list and then tick the box at
the bottom which says 'always open with'.

Yes, maybe so. But I know that thru Firefox, on my 2nd user acct, I cannot
download rar files for some reason. And a lot of stuff at mts2 is in rar
format. Thru my main acct, I have no problems at all downloading anything.
But I wonder if some format that is associated with the media program is
close to that of a rar file.

No luck ,it thinks its a media file as soon as it starts DLing it. so when I
go to the download folder it is in media file form .I tried to use winzip
but all that it did is unzip a media file.I need to associate the .rar with
something other than a media file,How do you do that.
