    If i downloaded a program to my pc, would I be better off downloading a .rar, or a .zip?

    What would I need to do to make either work? Pc on windows vista. Thanks.

    either is a compressed file. get winrar or winzip, or a similar freeware program (winrar and winzip have 30 day trials)

    Use .rar, it's generally faster and can achieve smaller file sizes than zip.

    You can download winrar at rarlab.com.

    You can get 7zip for free (not my favorite, but the price is right) and it handles both

    7-Zip
