You need to download a RAR Expander software which supports Apple scripts and can also expand multiple archives at once. it is a MacOSX program which extracts the files contained in RAR archives. It also support password-protected archives files. But make sure before opening any .rar file, it run it through a virus scanner. Best of luck.
