WinRAR is a windows program for using RAR type files. There is no 'WinRAR' on Ubuntu.

Installing rar like you did should add support for RAR files into the standard "archive manager" for ZIPS, TARs, etc.

(copied from William Fleming, he got some of my upvote power for his answer)
Installing unrar will help you with unpacking them: sudo apt-get install unrar

If you're referring to this, it's a commercial version, as you can see, and it has not a GUI. I suggest to use file-roller, that is default archive manager for the GNOME desktop environment.
