    "Easier and more versatile than winzip"

    September 14, 2005  |   By ramsj900

    Pros

    A must have if downloading music, movies, or bittorrents

    Fully compatible with winzip(*.zip) or L7 files

    Simple context menu access

    Higher compression makes smaller end files

    Cons

    If one chooses all of the context menu choices (some of which will never be used) it can slow down context menu expansion on older slower machines

    You may be impressed with what you see at first, but look into it further. This program is full of viruses and trojans, and will mess up everything on your computer.
