    Craftbukkit should never come in a rar file. Where did you download it and are you absolutely certain that it is legit? It can be a virus/malware if it is not downloaded from the official source, and if it is legit, please report it because I don't think others should be distributing craftbukkit, no matter how helpful 7zip/WinRAR is.

    You used to open your minecraft.jar with WinRar, don't you? :)
    Now your Windows opens all .jar files with WinRar, so it calls your craftbukkit.jar a 'WinRar archive' too, though it still is a .jar file. Anyways, ignore that and move your craftbukkit.jar (which may seem to be a .rar archive) to your server folder. Assuming you're using the recommended start.bat (and you didn't rename the CraftBukkit download) the server should start up correctly.
