there might be some software complications.
try starting in safe mode, and see if you get any CRC errors while extracting the rar file.
i did reed about some driver making those CRC errors show up. so a safe mode will eliminate the possibility.

might also be due to an unstable version of windows. do you use an early cracked build of windows? if so. buy the real deal. (or get a newer build some other way)

A quick google search mentions checking the firewall software you are using (and turning it off while unzipping the file).

Also saw a post where running chkdsk /r fixed this problem.

Is the drive formatted as NTFS or FAT32? Sounds like NTFS is the better option.
