Hey all...I NEED to use a file that is in .rar format. However, I don't want to buy WinRAR as I NEVER use it.

Is there an alternative program that can be used to view these files??

if u just need to deal with a few .rar files, winrar is free for the first 30 or so days.
id be very interested if u can find an alternate program which deals with .rar, but i never have, i came to the conclusion that .rar is specific to that program and not a generic file compression format such as .zip, anyhow

Late,

Thats what I figured. Problem is, I have had nero on my pc for around 6 or 7 months and never deleted it. I am sure it leaves something somewhere so that if I reinstall it, it will tell me I need to purchase it again, right?

I need to use this .rar file as I need it to make an .iso of a program that will clone my harddrive to my new one, as my main harddrive is failing, its an emergency! ahhhhh i hate programs like that...grrrrrr :mad:

I've been using the 30 day winRar for over a year, the window pops up saying the time has expired , I click on close and it still works.

Johnwill, I tried IZarc, based on your recommendation. How do you delete the list of items that you have unzipped? You find such a list when you click on File--down at the bottom.
Probaby a simple answer, but I couldn't figure it out. :)
