Editorial Review

WinRAR (32-bit) is a convenient utility program that lets you open compressed files or create your own new archives with just a few clicks. This streamlined and efficient program accomplishes everything you'd expect with no hassle through an intuitive and clean interface, making it accessible to users of all skill levels.


Sleek and speedy: This app does exactly what you want it to do, and it does it very quickly. When accessed through WinRAR, compressed files open just like any other folder would. And when you want to create your own archive, the process is just as streamlined.

A complete package: WinRAR offers all of the features you'd want from a program like this without any baggage. It lets you create archives, add files to existing archives via drag and drop, open both ZIP and RAR files, and repair and protect your archived files.


Not free: While the length of the 40-day trial may cause you to forget, this program is not free. Once you've passed the 40-day mark, you'll have to pay $29 for a license to continue using it.

Bottom Line

It's hard to work on a Windows computer for long without downloading WinRAR. When you're looking for programs that can open or create compressed files, it consistently ends up at the top of the list, and for good reason. And the generous trial period means there's no real reason not to check it out. The 32-bit version of this app will work on both 32-bit and 64-bit machines, but if you know you have a 64-bit system, you're better off going with the version of WinRAR that's optimized for it.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of WinRAR (32-bit) 5.01.
