  • Don't get rid of it bc.

    1. It doesn't take that much space 3,71 MB to be scientific.

    2. Its slow bc you either are doing other stuff at the same time, or you have a cheap computer.

    3. Any thing can contain a virus, you know don't hate the player hate the game.

    4. It could come in handy later in time.

  • Hey,

    Here is a good link where you can download winrar for here:

    You can use winrar to decompress zip files and a bunch of other formats. Other good programs are 7zip and winzip but in my opinion winrar is the best one. Fuctionalities are pretty similar for all programs: basically you can decompress a file simply by right-clicking it and by choosing the destination folder.

    Winrar is available for free under a trial licence. The good thing is the trial period never ends so you can use it for free with no limitations. Winrar opens all formats like .zip, .rar, .7z, .iso, .tar, .jar etc. That's why I recommend it.

    It's the best choice.


  • Do I Need Winrar

  • It's a very small program and it does not affect the performance of your computer in any way. It does not cause viruses. It's up to you if you want to keep it. If you never use it, uninstall it.

  • You should keep WinRAR since it is used for archiving or extracting files and it does not cause viruses.

  • Hi,

    can you please do the following to sort ALL your problems :-

    Download CCleaner, install it and then run it, this will safely delete all your temp files etc for you, then reboot back into safe mode again (press F8 as it boots up) and defrag your hard drive to get all your free space back again, I think your system is full of rubbish and just needs a good cleanup.

    CCleaner will also clean your reg files correctly as well, but please remember to reboot between doing a disc cleanup and a reg cleanup.

    Deғᴀԍgler will defrag your drive quickly and cleanly.

    This will help you, (I promise).

    This is a completely free download and will not harm your system in any way.

    Please use any “Filehippo” links as these are free download links.

    That will sort out your HDD problems.


    Also please do a REG file cleanup as this is the most common cause of slow systems.

    Your system is full of rubbish and just needs a good cleanup so windows will then run correctly again.

    This is completely FREE, easy to do, and most importantly WORKS so why not try this first??

    this will HELP you

  • It doesn't cause viruses. It's for zipping and unzipping files. You should probably keep it.

  • Wow, Thank you! exactly what I was searching for. I looked for the answers on the internet but I couldn't find them.
