I know if you have already used a trial of Winrar,you won't be able to install it a second time.

Not at al;l sure what you mean??? Are you having problems downloading and using WinRar itself or a program downloaded as rar files or simply a program that requires extraction?

Hello and welcome to FPCH Darkshadow. If you are looking for an alternative to open WinRAR files (*.rar extension) then you might want to look at the suggestions listed here. Personally, I would go for IZArc as it seems to be the most versatile. In the end, its your choice. :)

If this is not what you required, then please elaborate a bit more in your next post. We will try to help you to the best of our abilities.
