    There is a program called Associate This that will make it easy for you ... Download

    Link is broken, trying to find another but no luck so far. Yes, I know necro-ing a thread is considered uncool. I'm just at my wits end trying to force windows to accept my file association. So shoot me.

    Hello,

    By default, the .rar file type is not associated to open with any app.

    If you like, you can download and merge the .reg file below to unassociate .rar files.

    Unassociate_rar.reg

    @f23948,

    If you want to have a different app to open .rar files, you should be able to right click on a .rar file, click on Open with, and set an app to always open it.

    Open With - Change Default Program

    If you didn't want any program set to always open .rar files, then the .reg file I posted above will unassociate .rar files for you.
