    @dalchina that helped a lot. Thanks.
    Since the last post I've moved from clean boot to normal boot, uninstalled the x86 version of 7zip, and a malfunctioning Intel driver update program.
    There are no saved RAR files on this computer. They are all in the download folder.
    Clicking on *.RAR they will open properly.
    The problem I am guessing was that there were multiple file types in the downloaded folder and one was misbehaving or not designed to be opened by 7zip?
    The download folder had flashed and nothing opened. Now if the contents are separated within the folder only one file within the folder will flash and the others will open normally.
    It was the *.speecy file that was making the flash.
    7zip could not open this speecy file whereas it would open the minidump, *,info, and *.txt.
    Somehow winzip was able to process the download folder in a different fashion.
