Neither. I use IZArc which for me, has been the best by far.

WinRAR isn't free...7-zip is and does what I need. So, I use 7-zip.

I stopped using WinRar a LONG time ago in favor of 7zip. Haven't had an issue, and never looked back. Anything else can be handled by Universal Extractor: Universal Extractor | LegRoom.net (Also free)
