    Hello everyone, here's what happened:
    I wanted to install Quicktime 7.
    I trashed Quicktime X.
    Big mistake.
    Suddenly I couldn't open any rar or mpkg.
    I restarded the system.
    Super big mistake, now I can't start the mac. I push the button but it freezes on the apple logo and doesn't open the system.
    What the hell happened?

    You mustve done more that trashed just the QuickTime X Application - Even removing it wouldnt cause rars / mpkg to freeze/not open, it sounds to me like whats actually happened is an installer somewhere has thrown a hissy fit and corrupted something, as just deleting an App "cant" cause that behaviour. (Not even QuickTime X)

    Sounds like you've probably deleted or modified other stuff prior to the whole QuickTime X situation, and you've not restarted your Mac since then, so it looks like QuickTime X was the culprit.

    Hope you backed up.
