Hey guys, having probs with sites like rapidshare, when trying to download .zip and .rar files...

though I have programmes to open both file types, I most often get an error message saying that my iBook cannot doenload some.exe file, and to contact the system administrator.

Is this beacuse when the files were uploaded, they were done from a PC which somehow needs another programme to download .zip and .rar from the host?

Or something more sinister??

Where's the right-click button?
QUOTE Thanks
