    Your thread is kinda hard to read to be honest Simon.

    Your downloading torrents, and the majority of them come in a RAR format which requires WinRAR. (Excuse me if I am teaching tou to suck eggs, but if we start from the top we should find this works for you quicker).

    Using WinRAR to extract the archives, you should be presented with either a folder (containing some files or a single file) or indeed a single file or some files in the same folder as your original RAR files.

    Lets check your Windows Setting first, as this will help too.

    Make sure you are able to read all the extentions of all the files on your PC. To do this, in any window click on Tools then Folder Options.

    From here click the View Tab and uncheck the box for "Hide extentions of known file types" and click OK.

    Hit me back when you have done this.
