Easy unzipper program

Any suggestions, please - preferably useable in either XP or 7.

Ditto rdave13, 7-zip is excellent.

Thanks guys -you all seem to agree that 7-Zip is the answer. I have downloaded it. But what I am trying to do is unzip a program called XP_CD-DVD-Fix.exe, as my disk drive, which has been perfectly good for a long, long time, has just stopped working.
But I can't get this file to unzip whichever unzipper I try to use. I suspect there is something major wrong with my system, as even the new external DVD/CD drive I bought won't work.
I should also say that I am trying to go back to XP, as I really hate 7. At the moment I am dualbooting, until I have transferred all my programs into XP. Unfortunately, I can't do this without the disk drive!

I can't work out why you can't unzip it, I have just tried downloading it from this site and unzipped it without any problem click here

I notice it is a very small program of only 28KB.

Sorry to hear about the problems you are having, computers, what else would we be doing if we didn't have them to talk about?
