    I've downloaded a 32-bit file through download manager. But it becomes a
    Winrar file, and can't be unzipped or installed. Should it be a ISO format
    file, and how I can I change it?
    And, Nero said the file can't not be burnt as ISO format as it is over 2G. I
    burnt it as UDP compilation. Yet, the file appear as Winrar format and can't
    be installed.
    Thanks anybody for help.

    I think it may be too late now but you must have had WinRAR options set to
    associate with ISO files. I uncheck any of these options when I install
    WinRAR only letting it assoctiate with its own files or .zip

    I don't know if you remove the association from WinRAR if this would free
    the file up or if you need to download all over again making sure not to have
    the association within WinRAR settings.

    I have WinRAR and did not have this problem.
