    Received 3 rar files via email ?

    Hi,

    They are supposed to be pictures, but they end with .rar, and when I opened one of them, it opened a text in notepad, can someone tell me what they really are?

    I uploaded the files here:

    The .rar indicates that the file is compressed, similar to .tar or .zip using the Roshal ARchive methodology.

    You would need to use a decompression tool to extract the files. They are actually .jpg picture files.

    I ran one through VirusTotal and it came back with 0 detections out of 32 different malware detectors tried.

    It sounds as if you don't have a decompression tool, or, if you do, files with a .rar extension are not associated with it?

    You can get a free utility here:

    It is called "ALZip"

    7-Zip will handle RAR's and it's open-source:
