WinRAR is the kind of software you can just count on to work, and not get in the way. It'll decode anything and allows you to open files and even run programs directly from zip archives--a feature I use all the time, and it's never let me down. Additions to the system's right-click menu are very handy for extracting archives, etc.
Despite how good it is, $30 is a bit expensive for software these days. I would like to see that cut in half maybe. But then again it could just be that I'm poor. :)
