Extract contents from an ISO

I am wondering if there is a way to extract the files from an ISO. The ISO was downloaded from the internet onto my harddrive. I would like to be able to unzip the contents of the ISO. Do I have to burn the image to a disk in order to view the contents?

To avoid confusion, I should mention that I know very well how to burn ISOs onto disks and I know how to view the contents of a CD that was created from an ISO. This is not what I am trying to do.

You can also use WINRAR. It lists out all the files and you can extrace the files you want.
