I'm using Vista Ultimate 64-bit and need a program to open an RAR file that I downloaded.  I've found a number of sites online offering such programs but am nervoucs about downloading from sites I don't know.  Can anyone recommend a safe program/vendor?

    Or, if you want to download either of these direct from their manufacturer:

    WinRAR (Shareware)

    IZArc (Freeware)

    In addition to these, there's also

    7-Zip (Freeware)
