If you are into open source, and want to get even more compression,
check out 7-ZIP
http://www.7-zip.org/ I've been very happy with it, although I will
admit that I do have WinRAR and PKZip on my box as well.

RAR is just another archiving algorithm, and I'd be surprised if there
was a standard-issue Zip program that couldn't open them up (though a
quick search through the WinZip site didn't turn up mention of RAR,
which may be why you asked). The freeware file manager PowerDesk (which
I used to document) will also open RARs. Click the "free trial"
button here: http://www.v-com.com/product/PowerDesk_Home.html.
