"invalid or corrupt authenticity information". They took me a long time to find and
download.who knows how to stop this error??

1.OpenWinrar from start menu.
2.Browse to the corrupted rar file.
3.Inwinrar address bar enter the corrupted rar path, 

select the corrupt rar file.

4. From winrar menu bar click 'Repair'.
5. a new rar file with prefix 'fixed' will be created.
6. Rename the fixed rar file to the original corrupt rar file name.
7. Now extract and you should have your content without any errors out of RAR files.

If all else fails try running the same diagnostics with 7zip.
