    so I installed winrar in my XP bootcamp/parallels install before installing unrarx in osx. As a result i guess winrar is the defauly app associated with rar files in osx so when I just try to open them it opens parallels and my xp instance and runs winrar instead of just running unrarx. How can I change this?

    Select a .rar in OS X. Hit Apple+I. Under "Open With", select your desired program, and hit "Change All". Confirm it, and things should be fine.
