Alright, using 7zip worked for the patch, but I'm waiting for the V. 0.955 to download before we can see if it completely worked... (I deleted V. 0.955 earlier because I didn't think I could get it to run again, the patch downloaded in all of 5 seconds, but V. 0.955 says it needs 20 minutes or so...)
Hope this works! Thanks!
EDIT\\\ I downloaded 7zip, and while Win7 is nice and all, it has a horde of background programs that slow down your PC soo much, there's programs that run the side bar, the task bar, that cycle thru your backgrounds, that moniter what files you access, and how often you access them... XP is just faster. Shinier? No, but it runs.
