Editors' Review

+

From install to operation, this freeware is one of the easiest file compression tools you'll find. JustZIPit doesn't bother with an interface. Installation takes only a single-click as the application merely adds two items to your Context menu. Help is a single page and should easily explain the application to all users.

Operating JustZIPit takes a single-click to zip or unzip a file or folder. Right-click any file or folder and choose JustZipit Create and the file or folder is compressed quickly to a ZIP file. Saving time, the zip file is named the same as the folder or file and given the zip extension. The application includes a second function to perform the ZIP operation, and then add the file to a new e-mail using your default e-mail client. Oddly, unzipping a file means clicking it and selecting JustZIPit Create. The application will unzip files created with other ZIP tools.

Compressing and uncompressing is very quick with this tool. It needs no additional DLL or .NET to run. While the lack of an interface may bother some users, power users looking for simplicity and speed will want JustZIPIt.

"Doesn't Work Well, Lots of Adware"

March 22, 2013  |  By RJBCnet

 |  Version: JustZIPit 135

Pros

Well, it was easy to install!

Cons

Loaded a redirect program ("InfoAtom") into my browser, as well as forced some online backup program... Even though I specifically selected the "Custom" Install and told it not to add toolbars, etc.

Further, the context menu (right-click) options only work for certain types of files... You can Zip PDFs, for example, but not XML files. You can't select many different files and right-click them all into one ZIP file at once.

So, as an actual archiving system, pretty useless.

"Will add a bunch of adware to your computer"

January 10, 2013  |  By traetz

 |  Version: JustZIPit 135

Pros

It works as it says it does.

Cons

This added a bunch of adware to my computer, changed my home page, and installed some browser thing that I had to uninstall. I've now wasted a ton of time on correcting all the problems this thing caused.

Summary

DON'T DOWNLOAD THIS.

"IT JUST DOES NOT WORK!"

December 24, 2011  |  By WelshWizard378

 |  Version: JustZIPit 135

Pros

It isn't a virus, a worm or a trojan.

Cons

It does nothing except open a webpage advertising their other product which is not free. After removal, it has left two annoying items in my context menus that will take a fair bit of registry editing to remove. Yes folks, I do know how to "right click", or I wouldn't understand the term "context menu".

My OS is XP SP3, if anyone thinks they know what I am doing that is so wrong.

Summary

Avoid this like the plague. As someone mentioned above, all of its functionality is ALREADY NATIVE TO WINDOWS. Whether it works or not, you just don't need it.

December 22, 2011  |  By Sam Earle

Pros

Quick, from right-click drop down menu.

Cons

Doesn't work on Windows 7 but Windows 7 has its own built in under the "send to" tag on the right-click menu.

Summary

I recently put this on a friends XP machine and she had no idea it would work that easy and WELL. New convert.

"totally useless"

November 14, 2011  |  By usher807

 |  Version: JustZIPit 135

Pros

simple to setup and run.

Cons

a total nightmare when it comes to uninstalling the program, leaves behind self-replicating registry keys, context menus and other pieces linked to the program. There is no active support and a majority of the links are dead.

Summary

I would highly recommend users to use another freeware program other than Justzipit. or save your money up to purchase the ultimate program Winzip.
