Editors' Review

+

When all you've is got a hammer, every problem looks suspiciously like a nail. RarZilla is a great little utility for automatically unraring RAR archives, but it doesn't do much else. Depending on whether that's all you're looking for, RarZilla is either just the tool you need or woefully inadequate.

The program does a wonderful job of unzipping--sorry, unraring--RARs, and it provides three methods for achieving that goal. You can select the "RarZilla!" option from the context menu associated with any RAR file in Windows Explorer, you can double-click the RAR, or you can drag and drop the RAR onto the program interface. To aid in the last one, the program is permanently set to live on top unless you minimize it. We found that annoying, but your mileage may vary. It extracts the compressed files to the same folder in which the RAR lives. RarZilla is squarely aimed at those users who predominantly use the RAR format. Fans of other archive formats should look elsewhere for an extractor or a traditional archiving/unarchiving tool.

    "DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS SOFTWARE - BROWSER HIJACK ALERT!!"

    June 11, 2014   |   By jssterling123

    Version: RarZilla Free Unrar 5.10

    Pros

    Absolutely NOTHING!! THEY FORCED ME TO RATE THIS 1 STAR IN ORDER TO ALERT YOU ABOUT THIS MALWARE. THEY SHOULD HAVE AN OPTION SO YOU COULD AT LEAST PUT ZERO STARS. IF I COULD I WOULD RATE IT ONE MILLION NEGATIVE STARS!

    Cons

    DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS - IT CONTAINS TROVI MALWARE! I am SHOCKED that CNET Editors give a browser hijack malware program an "Excellent" rating. WHAT!!! Why are they being complicit with malware that hijacks your browser?????????????

    I tried to get rid of this malware using Norton, that didn't work. I then tried Malwarebytes, and while that removed part of the problem, I didn't get rid of it completely until I downloaded and ran ADWCleaner.

    Summary

    CNET YOU NEED TO TAKE THIS OFF YOUR WEBSITE IMMEDIATELY!!! YOU ARE HELPING TROVI INFECT THOUSANDS OF COMPUTERS BY GIVING IT AN EXCELLENT RATING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Works as advertised. Easy to handle.

    You cannot change the interface picture of the main screen of the app. Free RAR Extract Frog can do that.

    Summary

    Works. Reliable. Nice.
