Have you recently downloaded anything that would have caused this?
When did you first notice it was happening.
Have you run anti-virus etc?
its not a virus and if checked my anti virus its not some thing like that...
i think its so,e thing like when you try to open a file and the computer doesnt know with what to open it so he asks you and some one check winrar and by doing that all the files turned to winrar but i dont know how to change that...
Can you check Start>Control Panel>Default Programs>Associate a file type or protocol with a program.
When you say all files are trying to be opened with WinRAR, does that mean, MP3's, .exe, .doc etc
Hi, copy ALL below in the code box to notepad then save as Lnk.reg save to desktop, right click on the saved file and select merge. Restart computer.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
