Extract file, or if it's an image use daemon tools.

extracted it using winrar, but still cant see a way of turning on the program

everytime i click on the icon that appears when extracted it says "the torrent you are trying to add is already in the list of torrents. Do you want to load the trackers from it?"

dude, honestly torrents are such a pain in the ass. You have to do so much shit just to get it downloaded let alone get it to play if you can find the files.

Woah there simpleton. Once you learn how to do it it's very quick and easy.

OP, what exactly is contained within the rar?

nah man. I've been doing it for over a year or so now. I won't turn to limewire anymore because of the viruses and shit. But man, it still takes me like 30 minutes to find the song i want, pick out the other songs i don't want, then download it, then figure out where it hides the file, then transfer it into the folder where i want it, then play it, then if it works i can actually confirm it's usable. I just prefer the old fashioned searchbar, download, then click and drag. Those were the days.

And movies, forget that. Half of them don't work because I have the wrong decoder thing or whatever. I get the one which is supposed to do it for any video, but that obviously sounds too easy, as it never works.

Downloading is done for me man, that's it.

Not trying to be a dick, but isn't this kind of advice illegal guys?

If not, then to the guy who can't play vids: download VLC media player.

The file you downloaded is the torrent file, not the actual program, when you tried to open it, it starts to download with µTorrent. If you cant even use google to help you with this, you shouldn't be using torrents.

Torrents are a very easy way to download. Dont use limewire, use bittorrent or utorrent. If its downloading to the wrong folder, just change the directories in the settings

No, only if the file he's trying to download infringes copyright, but torrenting as a whole is not illegal.

I don't think he meant a picture image (like .jpg, .png or .bmp), the file might be an ISO or something.
