Default Dont send everywhere, rar doesnt work..

hi,
lately i encountered a problem, all rar archives, and anything that needs extraction does work, it say's that the file is corrupted or damaged, but if you extract a and while extracting you open it with vlc (so it couldnt be automaticly deleted after rar extraction finishes) it plays fine.. furthemore programs like skype often crashes (dont send error) after 10 minutes of runing, but if youre talking on skype you can talk untill you press dont send, then the program closes (i know it shuold do that). i tried reinstalling windows two times, got the latest drivers from nvidia(driveragent says all the drivers are good), tried the old ones from the cd, nothing seems to help.. what could it be? i dont know what info do you need more so tell me i will gladly post it. and sorry if my english is bad

So it is just rar archives or can you run any executable files?? Do since you say skype is installed it doesnt sound like the executables are corrupted. So it could be that the rar files are.

HAve you run a virus scan, malware scan, or anything like that?

Have you checked your hard drive/s for errors?

Do error checking on your hard drive and turn off error reporting.

Memtest86.com - Memory Diagnostic

Download and run that overnight. If there are errors with the RAM that will tell you. Also use CPUz to find the make and Model of your motherboard. From there use CPUz to see if the RAM you have installed is the right kind. Also going to Crucial.com might do that for you as well.
