    How do I run - rar files

    I recently downloaded a Norton clean tool that is an "rar" file. How do I run this type of file.

    Also, I am downloading a mod for the game Battlefield 1942 and it is also an rar file. How would I run, install that file.

    Thanks

    they are compressed file aechive.

    like winzip

    use winrar to uncompress the file and you will be able to run the files.

    7-zip is great utility, but I have found an even better free util called IZ-ARC, has so far handled everything I have thrown at it.
