ive been trying to download fonts and brushes for gimp and when i do if it is a zip file my computer starts blinking and multiplying pages like crazy. i have to shut it down and reboot every time. i dont seem to have problems with rar downloads but i cant find fonts and brushes for that. i use vista 64 bit with chrome and gimp 2.6.
The fonts zips are weird? Gimp reads font files just okay if they are placed in the correct Gimp folders.

it happens right away when i download them. it does wait around long enough for me to open or save it. and ive also noticed that an internet explorer page is blinking in and out even though im in chrome. ive tried sending explorer to the trash can but that didnt work. so i brought explorer back and tried to use that browser then go get the downloads but no dice. im wondering if i have a conflict with the rar and zip files somehow?
well i went in and looked around but couldnt find any place to turn that off. but i did discover that is a trail version that i down loaded over a year ago. why it still works i dont know. but the extract box does come up when i download stuff for the online racing that i do. maybe i should download a different compression software?
ya your right Maffe811. it said 40 days free trial. i forgot all about it til i was trying to download fonts and brushes for GIMP and had this issue. it seemed to download rar fine. but i dont think WiRar is the problem now cause im still having the issue with 7-z. i'll just keep tryin things til something works.
