I tried to download a chapter, but I realized it was a RAR file. I'm just wondering what version of WinRAR should I download to read the scans? I'm hoping it won't be one that eats an obscene amount of memory XD

Huh?
Someone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't WinRaR just unpack the file?

That's the thing. I actually don't have the WinRAR program/software/whatever. I just need to know which version I should download (if you check the site, there's quite a few of them).

I am using version 3.8, but I see there is a version 3.9.  I don't have any problems whatsoever using an older version, so I think it's okay to download whichever one you can find most easily.  I think all you have to know to choose which one is best is whether you need 32-bit or 64-bit and what version of Windows you have.  It takes up hardly any room, and unpacks things in a matter of seconds.

The program calls itself a free trial version, but it doesn't bug you about buying a license.

Try this link, it might be easier to choose an option:

Sorry, for my late reply on this. But I would recommend a more general archive utility tool, like IZArc. Just google for IRCArc and you'll get a lot of dl options (sorry, for not providing one). It's free and very easy to use. And it can handle a wide variety of formats, not only zip and .rar. You have to take care to dl the correct versions for your Windows system. But I don't know, if it's already compatible with Windows 7.
