What is a program I can download to uncompress .rar files? Winzip only has a 45 day trial and PKzip doesn't recognize .rar format.

Any suggestions?

uh..you can uncompress rar files with, like, winRAR?

it has a trial date but in fact it never runs out AFAIK

or 7zip, for a free and "open source" one

It's a bit odd when you think about it ...

The original file is uncompressed then it becomes compressed but when you reverse that process it becomes decompressed rather than uncompressed even though the decompressed file might to all intents and purposes be indistinguishable from the uncompressed version.

This brings up deep philosophical issues about the nature of things being identical and whether two otherwise identical things with a different history can ever be identical.
