You need an "Unrar" application, like a .zip file needs to be unzipped.

Not sure of a good unrar app. though, so I'd wait until someone more knowledgeable appears!

Hope this helps in some way :)

i have in conversation a while ago with a mate he said in passing about a application to open that type of file but i have never had to before so i didnt take much notice cause i dont think he really knows he was just trying to be clever in telling me something ,but yes thanks for that !!
