Default How do I uncompress .7z files?

I've downloaded a couple of files recently that my winrar won't decompress. They end in .7z. What program do I have to download so that I can have access to these files?

WinRAR should be able to handle them. Which files did you download that it can't open? They might be broken files.

It was the Longboat mod file on Spaceempires.net that I couldn't decompress. Then there was a note last week that said don't download, he was having some kind of problem. That must be why I couldn't get it to work. But thanks for the info.
