there is a CHANCE that u maybe able to use a different decompression utility (this is HIGHLY doubtful, as I'd have to agree its a corrupted download probably cut during the data stream). Anyhow, depends on what it was compressed with to begin with. Try something like winace or another deco utility. Never hurts to try, especially if you say you can't download it again

try more pros to uncompress your file, if all of them don't work,

yeah i would delete it but rather than downloading it yourself. Why not ask a friend or relative or someone you know that has a highspeed connection to download it for you? thats what i did before i got my dsl.

Your file is corrupt. That's why 56k sucks for downloading big files.

No one here (in their right mind and obeyance of the forum rules) is going to help you get an illegal copy of a game. I'm assuming you're trying to download a game from some P2P program like Kazaa. Illegal is illegal. There's a forum rule about that.

If this is a legitamate source (such as a game-developer's online distribution source) then I would suggest contacting them and requesting the file on CD. Usually they'll just ask for shipping, and some won't ask you to pay anything.
