WinRAR, which is published by RARLAB, is a useful program to encrypt, compress, pack and backup files. This software supports both .RAR and .ZIP files. Also, it can open ARJ, CAB, LZH, GZ, TAR, UUE, BZ2, ACE, ISO, JAR, and 7-Zip files. It is supported by Windows XP, 2003, Vista, Server 2008, 7 and 8 operating systems. WinRAR can protect archived files from damage, it can scan the archives for viruses, verificate the authenticity of the archive, and it has many other useful features. This program can help to save disk space or make the files smaller when transmitting them via OneDrive, DropBox or other file sharing platforms. However, if you believe that WinRAR (64-bit) is a not necessary program, you should remove it. We have prepared this removal guide for you – follow the steps closely and uninstall WinRAR in a right way. There are two ways to uninstall it.
