Is there a program that will automatically Unzip multiple Zipped RAR's?

    LOL @ title.

    anyway, many releases nowadays are compressed like this to prevent viruses or something... you download the release, and you get a shitton of zips...

    program_00.zip
    program_01.zip
    program_02.zip
    ...
    program_xx.zip

    and each .zip contains a .rar, for example...

    program_00.zip will contain release.rar
    program_01.zip will contain release.r00
    program_02.zip will contain release.r01
    ...

    and only after you unzip each rar and get all the rar's into 1 directory can you open release.rar to get the file you need... is there a program that will automagically do all this for me?

    When I use WinRar to unzip the first one, it automatically unzips the next one.

    i know how to do it in two steps.

    open winrar, goto the dir with the zip, highlight all the zips, extract.

    then click the first .rar and extract as it will used the spanned rars to extract the data.
