Close. The setting is in the Leech Tweaks screen but it is not the auto pause par2 checkbox. That should (usually) remain checked on.

Further down that screen is the Rar-in-Rar setting. Change it to "Don't Check for RAR-in-RAR".

Regarding the "Rar In Rar" "Potential Spam Detected".

I also receive this message a lot while downloading. I saw the fix to uncheck the box under settings to ignore the Rar in Rar files to continue the download but my concern is: is it known if it's a flaw within Newsleecher and to just uncheck the box or is it actual spam and/or a virus being detected and being downloaded?

Thanks-

The "fix" you refer to is not a fix, it simply disables this type of spam detection. As far as I know, there's no such bug that creates false positives. Leave it enabled. If you get a message about a rar-in-rar being detected, open the file yourself and look at it, there's going to be another rar inside, which is almost certain to be password protected and essentially unusable.

I have seen false positives on the RAR-in-RAR issue. Not actually a TECHNICAL false positive, but it's detecting legitimate posts containing harmless internal archives.

Sometimes it's just one tiny archive that only encompasses a few kilobytes of a multi-gig posting that triggers it... I'd probably like to see a way to detect a RAR-in-RAR where the internal RAR is estimated to be close to the full size of the posting? Or at least, make it easier to continue downloading suspected but approved SPAM - especially so that it doesn't keep detecting the same thing over and over again.
