you have to use winrar to bring up the mod files. as soon as you get it use winrar to look at the files then highlight them and click extract to. extract them to your desktop. its easier to make a folder on the desktop that says data so you wont lose the files. drag the files into the data folder. after your done with that,highlight the files and click copy. this next part is a little complicated. go onto my computer or computer and click on local disk,then look in program files and try to find oblivion. mine shows up as bethesda softworks then the net folder is oblivion. next go into the data folder and click paste. the files should show up. when you go to play oblivion,click on data files and check the mods that you want to play in the game :) did i help?

WinRAR - the best addition to any PC gamer's free utilities list. I like it so much I bought a licence to support the evs.

WinRAR is good, but I would personally recommend 7-zip. It excels at everything WinRAR is good at, and it's free. As you probably know most mods come packaged as either 7z files, rar files, or zip files. 7z and rar require WinRAR or 7-zip in order to be opened while zip files can be opened without another program.

As for mods, there are hundreds of modders on here who can help you with that. Just go onto this link here:

You might also want to check back there on a regular basis too. There are new mods for Oblivion coming up on this quite quickly.
