    Moved from Suggestions and Feedback.

    Extracting the contents of a JAR file doesn't help. Open a command prompt, navigate to the folder containing the JAR file and issue the command
    Java Code:
    java -jar WhateverItsNameIs.jar
    What is the result?

    Then you need to go find a Windows forum or other learning resource.

    I did what you said and located it in command prompt, and the entered the command, it opens the file in java like normal,
    but the file is still stuck in windows explorer.

    What do you mean by 'stuck'?

    as i said earlier, when i double click them, windows explorer freezes and i must delete the files for it to go back to normal,
    and when i try to open them directly in java, nothing happens, i know now how to locate them in command prompt, but what do i do from here?
