please made the question 2 as a new question...

To address RAR files, install rar unrar p7zip-full p7zip-rar

Your touchpad you can try the following boot options:

i8024.reset
i8024.nomux=1
irqpoll

Those are good at making touchpads work

You will need to add them in /etc/default/grub

You will need to run:

sudo update-grub

after each test.

Can you help with this problem?
