    -Basic Functions. That's All


    -Installation Took More Time...
    -52Megabytes??? Are You KIDDING Just Having This Lousy Compression Software, Then Came Out Large Programs?
    -Reading Of ZIP Is SLOW
    -Nobody Cares For "Your" ZIPX Extensions! (BTW, Who Needs That?)
    -Difficult To Use


    One Of An Examples Of Bloatware... Heavy Yet Slowest!
    Try Other Programs That It Doesn't Bloat. NEVER BUY, SUPPORT NOR TRY-OUT WinZip! Really! Seriously! Don't!

    Alternatives I Recommend:
    7-zip (Open-source)
    WinRAR ($29 For Very Good Compression Software)
    HaoZip (China's Free Zip Utility)
    Peazip (Another Free Open-Source)
    UHARC (For Experts Who Want To Ultimately Compress Files)
