    Assuming it was legitimately acquired from RARLAB or one of it's distributors / dealers, yes.

    It's been around for nearly 20 years, and I've been using it for at least 10. It has to be clean. Even if it's not purchased it will work. With a nag screen though.

    If you don't have a legit licence for WinRAR. You might want to look at 7-zip, its open-source and can unpack almost all popular archives including RAR.
