Classic, please try clearing the cache of whatever browser you are using to ensure your browser isn't just being lazy and showing you a copy of the same file. Or you can use a different browser to download the files. This should hopefully solve your problems. Another factor may be your download speeds, but that shouldn't matter as much.

It could also be possible that your hard drive has some bad sectors if your using windows heres a quick guide to make it check for bad sectors next time you start it

 

1) Go to my computer

2) Right click drive C

3) Go to properties

4) Go to the tools tab

5) there should be something about error checking click that and make sure the box for recovery of bad sectors

6) it will attempt (but probably fail) and say you need to reboot your PC

7) Reboot and a chkdsk screen should appear and it will scan for bad sectors and attempt to fix them

If it is a .Zip you don't need a Winrar... it makes no difference if you have it or don't

then how come whenever i open it says its invalid or dorrupted?

 

how do i get winzip off rarlabs for free?

It says its corrupted because either A) your hard drive has bad sectors on it that it can not write the data to. or :P your browser isn't wanting to complete the download for some reason and it stops mid download.

 

 

How to solve this: Try a different internet browser. If your using Internet explorer i would recommend Mozilla FireFox its very fast. How ever if your using firefox try using internet explorer instead

 

You can download Mozilla Firefox here <-- Link to download

 

How to solve bad sectors on your hard drive:

 

1) Go to my computer

2) Right click drive C

3) Go to properties

4) Go to the tools tab

5) there should be something about error checking click that and make sure the box for recovery of bad sectors

6) it will attempt (but probably fail) and say you need to reboot your PC

7) Reboot and a chkdsk screen should appear and it will scan for bad sectors and attempt to fix them

 

 

 

Its not what your opening with trust me. It wouldn't give that error for a .Zip if you were trying to open it with the wrong program.

The diagnostics message is the equivalent of the error message you were receiving

Yes, as i said.... it probably wouldn't work with windows up and running. Did it ask you if you wanted to do it the next time you restart you computer?

then you need to restart your computer so it can do the test (assuming you told it to do the test next time) if you didn't you can simply redo the first test to get the option again

 

But before you do that i would try using a different browser first... then if that didn't work i would try the method above.

You don't need a program to extract a .zip file.

zLoader should inject the hack into StarCraft if it is already open, however if it is not zLoader should start StarCraft.

Yea, you have to have starcraft opened already for it to work otherwise it will try to open it for you then inject itself. However if you installed it to a different directory (Example: C:Program Files/ Starcraft1) Zloader wouldn't be able to find the installation of starcraft thus giving you the error

zLoader doesn't work that way silly. It's just checking the following registry file:

"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareBlizzard EntertainmentStarcraftProgram"

From there, it starts up Starcraft. If you already have Starcraft running, it'll just inject the hacks in the folder into SC's memory. If you do not have a proper copy of SC and have no registry files, I suggest getting the registry files.
