    "Good File Compressor with Cloud Support and much more"

    November 3, 2016  |   By sk528

    Version: WinZip 20

    Pros

    Works as expected and reasonably fast. Cloud and social media support for those who need it. Backup jobs can be easily created.

    Cons

    Since version 20 Winzip is subscription ware hence you pay every year again even you do not upgrade. Your license expires after 12 month and renders the software dysfunctional.

    Summary

    Pity Winzip turned subscriptionware!

    "Tries to do too much. Need to focus on better compressi"

    June 9, 2016  |   By A_Marcus_Young

    Version: WinZip 20

    Pros

    compresses files

    Cons

    Has tacked on features that make use confusing, Many things have nothing to do with compression. The compression needs improvement. It was the leader of the field. I believe WinZip needs to go back to its roots and polish its main purpose.

    Summary

    Way too many features that I do not need. I found the compression disappointing. I haven't upgraded for awhile so was expecting faster, better compression. Unfortunately the compression is no better than windows built in compression. Sorry I must be truthful in hopes WinZip can get ahold of itself and be the leader again.

    "Can not cancel"

    May 16, 2016  |   By cynhandly

    Version: WinZip 20

    Pros

    I don't know, I stopped the installation

    Cons

    Expensive with yearly fee

    Summary

    I went to the site and agreed to a fee of $29.99. I agreed to a ONE time fee of $29.99. Oh, they sent me a receipt fast enough. When I went download it, I READ the EULA before I agreed. There is a clause in there that you agree to let them charge you ANNUALLY forever for this product. I never agreed to that. I tried to cancel the purchase and there is no number. I then pretended that I wanted to BUY the program and low and behold a person answered the phone. He said I couldn't cancel it. He said he worked for Corel and I would have to call Cleverbridge to cancel. So if you buy this...you will be paying for it for a long time. In 5 years I would have paid $150 just for an unzipping program. My bank said the only way to stop the charge is to cancel my card. Don't use this company. I am really upset. I figured the only thing I could do was get the word out since I am not going to get my money back....Good luck

    "Costs a lot for something Windows does for free"

    January 16, 2016  |   By dgthomson1

    Version: WinZip 20

    Pros

    Can't think of any

    Cons

    Expensive, complicated interface if all you want is unzipping. When you install the trial version it automatically sets itself as the default unzipper app and so you can't see, or access, Window's (W10 for me) ability to unzip files all on its own.

    "dont install"

    January 9, 2016  |  

    Version: WinZip 20

    Pros

    there are no pros of getting a virus from this

    Cons

    I click to install this and after it downloaded it made explorer not work (meaning your desktop and dock with your pinned programs including start up menu) it made everything disappear except the internet browsing window and task manager did not work when i pressed clr, alt, delete all at the same time. I had to press f8 button to enter safe mode after i forced shutdown my computer and f8 for boot mode selection didnt come up when it says to push esc for options, so it hid f8 out of the f buttons, and wouldnt uninstall in safe mode, so i had to use recovery and restore to a previous system image to restore my computer to before it was infected with the virus

    Summary

    do not install this unless you want an infected computer!!!! you have been warned!

    "IT'S A RIP-OFF"

    December 1, 2015  |  

    Version: WinZip 20

    Pros

    It works like others.

    Cons

    Costs a ridiculous amount.
    Tries to include adware.
    Free competitors.

    Summary

    This is a rip-off for most people. My older laptop with Windows 7 doesn't have an built-in extract/zip tool, so the Microsoft support said I needed a 3rd party tool like WinZip. I downloaded to try for a measly 15 days to find out none of the "extra" features were testable, although I wouldn't even use them. Then they want $38 then $8 every year after. The extra tools are of no value to me and take up space. Free/cheap and more user friendly zip programs are plentiful, so skip the trial. Corel should be ashamed to have their name on such a trap, or use the WinZip name to push a overpriced product.

    "Wow virus checker went crazy"

    September 28, 2015  |   By RaybanMonster

    Version: WinZip 19.5

    Pros

    None whatsoever

    Cons

    Will install all sorts of adware, reminders and popups you absolutely do not need, but will no doubt harass you IN YOUR SYSTEM!

    Summary

    Avoid.. I cant believe that such a great product has now been infiltrated by this utterly unacceptable practice by owners Coral. Thank you AVG. I will never now install this product.. time for a new "zipper"

    "Chock Full of Malware"

    September 16, 2015  |   By BadGramps

    Version: WinZip 19.5

    Pros

    Absolutely none.

    Cons

    Installing Winzip will infect your machine with a multitude of malware. Eset NOD32 detected 12 malware programs that had to be removed. AVOID.

    Summary

    In fact, it's not wise to download anything that Cnet offers.
