    Winrar is a trial software which usually runs 30 days. after that one needs to buy it, so the common consent.
    WinRAR archiver, a powerful tool to process RAR and ZIP files
    I am using winrar 5.00 currently and even the trial period is expired, it is still functional but gets a popup every time I open it. Does not bother me though.
    Current version is 5.40 and nothing comes with it (no bloatware)

    Is there a way to open Rar files in Windows Explorer (like Zip files)? Something like rar-plugin for Explorer?
