How do I open a file .rar?

Title says it really, need to open a file with the suffix .rar.
Get the message file does not have a program associated with it. Any help please.

i take it to be a win rar type file which is a form of zip, and i guess you would win rar to open it.

Hi again I have downloaded 7z whatever that is, I am trying to open the .rar file which is an Email attachment do I need to copy it to another location?

Marko "just get the winrar" could you explain this a bit more please ie where is the winrar.

save the attachment to a folder then unrar it

click here

bare in mind though winrar is shareware and you will have to purchase a license after a certain period

the programs linked in by VoG™ & cocteau48 will do the same thing and they are free
