"Loved it for years... until Windows 7 x 64"
Handles more archive types than you can shake a stick at
Caused windows explorer to crash on right-click when installed on a Windows 7 x 64 system
I loved Zip Genius for years, using it without incident on an XP system. When I bought a new laptop running Windows 7 x 64 I installed many of my favorite programs, and many of them ran without a hitch. Zip Genius itself seemed to run fine, other than not being able to get it to fully close the original tab if I opened more than one archive.
Then I began having weird crashes of Windows explorer, seemingly random, when I would right-click on files or folders. Strangely, I could click on other files or folders and not get a crash, but it began to be clear that certain folders would invariably cause the crash - though for no apparent reason.
So began the process of uninstalling & re-installing various programs, and lo and behold, once Zip Genius was gone, so was the crashing problem.
Alas, I am back to searching for a good archive program. I will miss Zip Genius, but not as much as I missed a reliable context menu.
