For some reason, when I try to unzip a tar file (example: yada.tar.tar) nothing happens. When I explore the file in winzip and winace it just shows another tar file. If I try to extract that it just creates an empty folder. It has happened with a 'lot' of the tar files I'ved tried to extract, so I was wondering if there's a well known work around for this. I could also just be getting screwy tar files, so feel free to test the one I'm trying to extract Download Edit: Oh, it's ParaGUI (sdl gui library) for you paranoid viri guys

File name error. Remove the last .tar extension.
[edit]
Actually browsers are often configured to uncompress tar.gz archives to .tar on the fly. Try "Save As" using a single .tar extension only (without the additional .gz).
