I recently realized that I can not view ISO image files with WinRAR, it used to work now it does not.

 . Can not view ISO image files with WinRAR - only some ISO images can be viewed.
 . Burned ISO images that was not able to view with WinRAR does not display anything in Explorer.
 . Tried with ImgBurn, DeepBurner and WinISO; but still same problem.
 . Symantec Endpoint Protection v11 IDEs are up-to-date, no sign of malicious activity.

Why is this happening? I would like to add and remove some files off the ISO image I have.
I guess WinRAR can not read certain type of ISO images which are compressed with different method?

Should I try to reinstall the OS? or is it the image that can not be red?
Thanks for you help ;)
well? understand ma bad English.

Hi Eric,

first thing that I'll suggest you is to download Latest WinRAR version and to manually check "Integration" in WinRAR Settings:

Settings / Integration / "Associate WinRAR with" / Select All / Ok

*also check "Integrate WinRAR in to shell", is it turned On or Off?!

Maybe you can install a virtual CD with Daemon tool, or try to open with 7zip in both case you can copy any files that you want, other option it will be try to open in other PC, maybe you SO is corrupt. Good luck!!!
