    Hi,


    You need to install WinRar in order to open .rar files.
    First you need to extract all the files in that folder and then you can open them.
    For doing this,you first need to download WinRar from the internet.
    So install it as soon as possible!

    Bye!

    HI, my dear friend......windows vista have the capability to open or extract the some type of basic zip files only

    and if you want to open the type of RAR files you need to go for the third party software called WIN RAR

    and to download this software visit this website www.filehippo.com there you look on the compression and backup..... category

    and download this software and install it.............now extract the RAR type files

    ALL THE BEST.........!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
