A win zip program?

  misters 15:07 13 May 2005

Since i purchased my new pc, i have been trying to install a winzip version i used to have 8 i think but now when i visit, the winzip website it only offers winzip9 which is only a free to try but can any one point me to a version that i can use as free, i dont mind it being an old version just one where i can unzip files. Also can someone tell me what a rar file is?

winrar is the same as winzip it is shareware just like winzip, and it also does a good job of unzipping files......

If it's freeware you want then look at this one -
click here - note the add-ins required if you want encryption facilities.

(1) winzip 8 license will work with Winzip 9 because the license gives you life time free upgrade

(2) if you use WinXP, zip and unzip function are already build-in
