Are you using WinRAR to extract "The Sims 3.rar"? Or are you trying to extract the .iso also?

Yeah I'm using winrar. And I just right click the iso files and select extract here. Am I doing it wrong?

You need to mount The .iso's and then run them as a you would a disc. http://games4theworld.org/Guides/Mounting_Guide.pdf
