    Instead of repeating myself all over again, I have posted it here for all to view at UniteTheCows ...I'm lost on what to try next.

    I installed Alcohol about thirty years ago! It seems to have worked well only crashing my operating system a few times and behold I don’t remember any of them and had to be informed the day after by those who were not using the programme at the time.

    It’s definitely compatible with Win 3/95/98/ME/XP and NT as well as all version of Unix and Dos, but not Mac systems as the culture shock on viewing such a system reminds me of the owner playing a tenor saxophone to Bill Gates or was it the other way around.

    Even better is that the more you use alcohol the faster it appears to work and the more intelligent it becomes even if your at the pressing keys at random stage.

    I owe everything to it or should that be I’ve given everything to it. Who cares? All in a dream.

    You could try this reg file. Check if the path corresponds to your installation of WinRar.



    ---------------------------------------------------
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\WinRAR\DefaultIcon]
    @="C:\\Program Files\\WinRAR\\WinRAR.exe,0"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\WinRAR.REV\DefaultIcon]
    @="C:\\Program Files\\WinRAR\\WinRAR.exe,1"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\WinRAR.ZIP\DefaultIcon]
    @="C:\\Program Files\\WinRAR\\WinRAR.exe,0"

    Problem is FIXED....uninstalled WinRAR again, this time went through the registry & deleted all keys (alot of keys) and re-installed...problem is gone
