Hello phyys1x,

By default, .rar files are not associated with a default program in Windows.

If you wanted to unassociated .rar files, then you could use a method in the tutorial below to do so.
File Extension Type - Unassociate
If you wanted to assosicate a default program to open .rar files, then you could use either option below to do so.
(Option Two)
Default Programs - Associate a File Type or Protocol

OR

Open With - Change Default Program
Hope this helps,
Shawn

What happens when you right click on a .rar file, click on Open with -> Choose default program, select WinRAR, check Always use the selected program to open this kind of file box, and click on OK?

Open With - Change Default Program

I'll install WinRAR later today, and post back with a .reg file that will set .rar files to open with WinRAR by default.

phyys1x,

See if this may work you:

1. Open WinRAR, and click on Options (Menu bar).

2. Click on the Integration tab, check RAR, and click on OK.
