Just install Winrar and tell it to associate with zip files :)

I have Winrar installed and associated with all the extenions available.

If I click a rar file, even though it's associated with Winrar, it just opens up another folder instead of opening Winrar.

When it opens up with a folder the option to Extract is not there.

I have to open Winrar and open via the File menu.

well your winrar cant have installed correctly. I did this process and it worked fine. If you want though, you can open up my computer, go to Tools - Folder Options - File Types scroll down to zip files click them, click edit and change the program to winrar *yeah rushed i know but i aint done it for ages*

Hope you get this sorted
