Notes about the JAR file extension:



Incorrect file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your PC system. As such it is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other unfavourable system settings to identify slowdown issues.

The JAR file type is primarily associated with 'Java' by Sun Microsystems, Inc.. Compressed file package for classes and data. This is a special .ZIP format unrelated to the ARJ .JAR archive format. The JAR file format is based on the standard ZIP file format with an optional manifest file.
