I cannot read the text, but it looks like your rar file has the name The Sims 2 - Complete Collection.rar.torrent.
Delete the part .torrent from the file name to The Sims 2 - Complete Collection.rar and try again.

I can only suggest you download the torrent again (maybe via another torrent-agent)
or
Download and install the Sims 2 via ZLOrigin

The ZLOrigin version can be played off-line and contains all DLC's in 1 simple dowload, it will autmatically install the game

Hello and welcome to the Forum @simartine,

Please put the .torrent ending again on your file. It looks to me you did NOT actually download the .rar file of TS2 (which is approximately 15GB in size). You have to open the .torrent with a torrent client program such as uTorrent. In case you are new to torrenting, we have a wonderful guide here to get you started:

Good luck for now!

Yess, aye lieeke!

I must admit, I didn't think of that possibility. I presumed that the torrent was already downloaded.

One of the screenshots that the OP posted shows the filesize of the file in question, as only 30KB, so I assumed only the .torrent was downloaded, and not the actual .rar of the game, which as said is around 15GB.
