Hello,

While using Universal Extractor I have encountered with this error. How can I get rid of it? I'm running Windows 7 pro 32 bit. Would any other information be helpful? Thanks in advance.

The archive is corrupted, or invalid password was entered

Hi AlexanderGRogers,

There some reasons why you are having this error:

  • The download is not complete.
  • Your file is attacked by a Malware
  • The header of the file is corrupted. The header is the one that contains all information of the file. The cause of being corrupted of the header is because it is being attacked by a virus
  • Changing the file extension of the file can sometimes cause by corruption specially those extensions that are not supported the file.

To fix this problem:

  • Make sure that your file is downloaded completely.
  • Have an antivirus that will protect your files from being attacked by any virus.
  • Do not change the file extension but if you really want or need to change the file extension you need to make sure to use a file extension that only supported your file.
