Maybe you need a boot disk? Look on google to see if you can find similar problems that people may have had with that same game in that same file type.

is it possible that it might be .7z? If it is, then you need to download 7zip to extract it.

That seems like a split archive file. Supposedly winrar can combine them in most cases, though I don't know precisely how to go about doing that. Maybe you try to open one and it automatically looks for others. I've also seen recommendations for HJ-Split but I've never used that at all. And then additionally I don't know why pieces of a split rar archive would be stored themselves in a totally different 7z archive. Mysterieux!

Do you have extensions hidden? You can combine files with WinRar but that will change them to a rar archive... You could go to one of the files properties and see what file type it is.
