Without more information about your device, the software you are using for flashing and the stock rom you want to flash ... my first guess is that it is maybe a corrupt/bad download.
So re-download the rom file and compare the md5sum of the downloaded file with the one posted on the download page (if available).
If this can not help, please provide more information for further help.

EDIT: Here is a nice guide about md5sum and how to check it.

My tapatalk signature:
Phone: SGS5 (SM-G900F)
ROM: AllianceROM v4
Kernel: CF-Auto-Rooted stock G900FXXU1ANE2

Recovery: PhilZ-touch

If you have any question about or any issue with your SGS2, just ask in the New members friendly Q&A thread.
If you need general help/assistence, please go to XDA-Assist.

Sorry, but I have to repeat myself:
Please provide more information for further help.

Without more information about your device, the software you are using for flashing and the stock rom you want to flash, I can't help.
I can guess that you have to extract the rar file to get the file(s) you need for flashing ... but I want to help ... not guess.

Thanks for understanding.

Please don't create multiple threads for the same issue... Make one thread and then wait patiently for assistance.
