i have down loaded many maps and they are all in RAR and they won't register, i've also found a ship in RAR and it won't read out either.

RAR is a file compresser similar to WinZip. You will need to download WinRAR to be able to decompress the files. Search for it on google and you will find it.

I've got a question about that winrar. (obviously) :) Since the free copy is unregistered or something and expires in a few days, could I just re-download, or am I screwed?

http://www.win-rar.com/index.php?id=160&dl=wrar362.exe There is a link to the download. That should solve your problems.

Redownloading the same version will have little effect, but downloading a new version will reset the expiration date.

I don't know about now, but WinRar used to be "Nag-Ware". It would tell you to buy it in 30 days, but never expire. It would just keep reminding you that you are supposed to purchase it.

That's what I downloaded; is that the winrar that doesn't expire?

No, i think version 3.2 is the nag-ware. Keep a look out for that.
