Default winrar not installed, opens itself

Winrar isn't installed on my computer, I'm not sure if it's ever been installed on my current system, but the "Winrar self-extracting archive" keeps taking priority and half opening. It's visible on the alt-tab programs, but nothing opens on the start bar. It disappears after a few seconds, opens again in the same way, then closes again until the next day.
I ran a search and there are no winrar files or folders on my HDD that I can find.
I don't really know what to do

A self-extracting archive isn't a .rar file - it is a .exe file. Did you install any software recently?

I sure hope that it is not anything problematic. To be on the safe side, download Malwarebytes and run a check for Malware and PUP software within your computer. Prevention is always better than cure.
