You probably just think that it is in "rar" format. If you have winrar installed, an iso file is also associated with winrar and gives the iso file the same icon as a rar file, and if you do double-click it, winrar will load and allow you to unrar it, as it is similar to a rar/zip file. You probably don't have file extensions as viewable (windows default is to hide file extensions for some crazy reason). To fix this go open up explorer and click on Tools>Folder Options>View Tab>Hide extensions for known file types and uncheck this box. You will probably find that you had an iso file the whole time.
