is winzip not a free program anymore?
If it not can you suggest another free similar program.

Zipstar is good click here

BTW, Winzip has never been free, it should always have been paid for, it's a shareware program.

If you have XP it has its own zip extracter - right click on the zip file.

WinZip was always shareware, apparently.
I'd recommend 7-Zip too.

Can you still use XP once a zip file has been opened with Winzip? If so how ? Just looked at one of my Zip Files previously opened by Winzip and cn't see an option to open with XP, would I have to first uninstall Winzip?

XP's Extraction Wizard is always available; I use both WinZip and the XP version.

Key in Extraction Wizard into Help and Support for an overview of the XP version.
