After a vulnerability scan with Kaspersky Internet Security I was advised to downnload the latest version of 7-Zip. What is this and is it safe to download. I use Windows 10. Many thanks in advance

You obviously have already got 7-zip installed or Kaspersky wouldn't have checked it. Look in your list of programs.

7-zip is a free open source file compress/uncompress program. It is very popular and is the one I use, you can download the latest version from filehippo click here and choose 64bit or 32bit as appropriate for your system.

have Kaspersky and 7 zip but Not throwing it up on mine.

Peazip free is considered to be better than 7 zip now.

but if all you want to do is open zip files windows can now do that automatically.
