Rahul,

Have you checked in hklm\sofware\classes for that extra registry in .ism file? If not check it and if it is there then i think you can delete that entry from .ism.

If Admin Studio recognises a file extension which would be installed it cannot be seen in the Registry tab.
You should check the Component which installs winrar.exe and see the File Types tab. This is where the file associations should be registered.

Also read this msdn entry to understand how windows installer handles file extensions:
