Overview

WinRAR 5.30 64-bit is a software program developed by win.rar GmbH. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). When installed, it will add a context menu handler to the Windows shell in order to provide quick access to the program. The primary executable is named winrar.exe. The setup package generally installs about 25 files and is usually about 5.01 MB (5,256,784 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 10 and Windows 7 (SP1). While about 38% of users of WinRAR 64-bit come from the United States, it is also popular in Italy and Germany.
