RE: Help!!!! rar and zip files

Posted: 01-21-2009, 12:28 AM

Would winrar be of use to me? I have vista and have downloaded some
compressed files - but when right clicking cannot find the option to unzip
them, only open or open with. i used to have winzip evaluation to help, as I
could not get around this problem - but it has run out and i cannot afford to
buy the full version. would winrar solve this for me if i download this?

(I have not heard of winrar before this thread - but it seems that maybe it
will help)

You can try a trial version of WinRar from www.rarlabs.com.

Or use 7-zip forever (it's free).

http://www.7-zip.org/

It adds itself to explorer's right-click menu, making extracting the
files quite simple.
