Hi guys,

All of a sudden my mac isn't able to open .rar files anymore. At first I thought the file was corrupt but it does the same thing with all .rar files. I've tried RarMachine and Stuffit and both simply quit unexpectedly. I've tried restarting and everything else I can think of but still the same problem.

What could possibly be causing this?
QUOTE Thanks

Did you upgrade to Lion recently? Perhaps the upgrade "broke" your old tools (certainly Stuffit has broken).

I am using MacPAR Deluxe (latest version), seems to work fine.
