    Hey nelsonz,sorry but ur computer sucks!It also might be because u don't have much space left on hard drive.U actually can't drag and drop it.That is impossible.So right click ur rar and click extract it then put it on USB HDD with WBFS Manager.But I can tell u why u needed that much time to put it on USB HDD.When u click RAR file and drag and drop it it extracts file and puts it on WBFS formated HDD in same time and it alsoi uses windows default zippin' program and not ur WinRAR.That's the reason why is so slow.

    Personally I use several programs for unpacking the various file formats, winzip, winrar, ultimatezip, and 7zip. 90% of the time I am using ultimatezip to unpack the files. But for me, all my files are on another computer, and I use the network when transfering the files to the WBFS drive through WBFS Manager 2.5.

    If you have an old computer, check into adding in a little more memory, this may help increase your speed at getting things done, its a quick fix and boost, that can extend the longevity of your PC before having to breakdown and purchase a new one.
    Windows XP - They say requires 512MB to run, in reality, it works much better on 1024MB. 2GB of memory is better still, the limiting factor after memory would be processor speed/cache, the next would be motherboard bus speed, and finally HD speed and size.

    One note: it is best to remove the pagesys (aka windows virtual memory) to its own separate partition on another drive (optimal), or at least to its own partition at the end of the main drive (second best scenario), and set minimum to 2x the amount of ram and maximum to 3.5x amount of ram. This will reduce fragmentation of the main drive and also help increase speed of the programs running.

    P.S it also might be because I cant get a 4gb temporary folder, to be honest I dont know how to make one Ive created many empty folders as I have over 200gb free.

    Thank you for reading If anyone can help I beg of you Ive messed around with this for 7 hours now.
    back everything up on the computer that you need and reformat and re-install the OS... Sounds like you have a lot of crap running the backround and the true way to get rid of all the CRAP is to re-install the OS... The other thing that you can do is creat another profile/user on the computer (i.e Wii) and try to run the programs on that "side" of the computer and see what happens.. Also how old is the computer and do you have 1.1 USB ports on the computer and not 2.0....

    also WBFS manager can open RAR files... load up the WBFS drive and click browse and you can pick the rar and it will right the ISO to a temp folder and then it will show you the iso in the WBFS window and you can then load...
