Specs: Windows 7
How can I open RAR files for free, please? I have not had occasion to do this before but this has suddenly become necessary in some of my business E-mails.

Thank you.

✔ Best Answer
.rar files are similar to .zip files as they are generally a compressed version of one or more files (compressed to save space as attachments). There's several programs that can handle them:

http://peazip.sourceforge.net/
http://www.7-zip.org/
http://www.rarlab.com/

The first 2 are free while the third has a trial version available...

For what it's worth, I prefer Peazip.

Is Peazip totally safe to install, please? - a warning came up on my screen when I tried to download it.
Thank you.

No reason it shouldn't be safe if you downloaded it from the official (Sourceforge, not C-Net) site (above). Just curious, what was the specific message? If something concerning the "Open file security Warning" or "Unrecognized Publisher" message, then you get that with virtually anything that isn't directly from Microsoft (or "certified" by them)....
