Can anyone tell me which is the best programme to use for unzipping "zipped" folders, I simply want to open a "zipped" folder of a manual which is on a yahoo group and even though I have a brand new Acer laptop with windows vista these bloody awful zipped files are a real pain in the arse!!! I f**king hate them, even worse is all the bull*[email protected]: sites I have found that offer to give a free download of winzip but want you to sign up for other "free" useless things I dont want, like smileys and greeting cards, and which I suspect will BOMBARD your inbox with more crap and spam. Is there a direct link I can use to install this unzipper programme?? thanks alot - PCDIMWIT

Once you have installed 7-zip then right click on the file, in the menu, hover pointer over7-zip and select 'extract here'.
