    "Overpriced & Bloated"

    May 19, 2014   |   By NJPete61

    Version: WinZip 18

    Pros

    One of the very first windows based file archiving tools, can un-compress many archive formats.

    Cons

    This has become bloated & over priced.

    Summary

    7-zip (7-zip.org) is an outstanding "Open Source" (free) alternative, that works great.

    "Browser Hijacking"

    May 05, 2014   |   By wmhess

    Version: WinZip 18

    Pros

    The best thing I can say about it is that it was once a good company

    Cons

    Unasked for, and unwanted browser hijackinging when updating the Pro version. No warning, no option not acceptable

    Summary

    Look for another program they're a dime a dozen, and just as good.

    "Bundled with malware!"

    April 24, 2014   |   By Anthrobran

    Version: WinZip 18

    Pros

    Great for .rar files

    Cons

    Comes bundled with Linkey malware. Not difficult to remove, but frustrating.

    Summary

    If you download, make sure that you do a custom installation. The ONE time that I do the recommended installation on a program, I get Linkey. I uninstalled the program simply because I do not want to deal with any more surprises.

    "Goodbye Winzip - Never again"

    April 23, 2014   |   By lesking

    Version: WinZip 18

    Pros

    Good track record of excellent service going back to the earliest DOS editions(PKZIP, etc.).

    Cons

    Current version (18) downloads a whole load of junk software which hijacks your browsers and takes a lot of effort to clear-out.

    I suspect that the version enthusiastically reviewed by CNET was rather 'cleaner' that the installation package provided for download.

    Of course, the initial installation is a 'trial' version and it may be that the paid-for version doesn't have these issues - but I don't intend to pay around £25 just to find out.

    Summary

    Isn't it about time that software suppliers were banned from installing 'extras' which you never asked for - even the most reputable companies (AVG, ADOBE, etc.) are 'at it' with various toolbars and other add-ins which can easily mess-up your existing software.

    Computer abuse (Computaphelia) should be made a criminal offence.

    Perhaps somebody should start a new pressure group - Campaign Against **** Software (CASS)

    "Took over my computer"

    April 18, 2014   |   By icedrips

    Version: WinZip 18

    Pros

    Good for work stuff as long as it's someone else's computer.

    Cons

    I downloaded the free version and it was an absolute nightmare. It downloaded some malware and viruses and I couldn't get it off of my computer. It refused to be removed. I had to call some tech guys I know to remove it. Winzip made my anti-virus software turn on and off. The six hours it took to remove it allowed 34 malicious items to enter my computer. I had to remove and reinstall my anti-virus software because it would not come back to life after the invasion. I saw the "blue screen of death" several times throughout the rest of the day. I can't imagine why people would spend money on this horror.

    Summary

    Buyer beware.

    "This is an absolute RIP OFF. BEWARE: MALWARE. (TRUTH)."

    February 24, 2014   |   By aafreimann

    Version: WinZip 18

    Pros

    This is supposed to be SHARE-WARE, as it's always been. It's malware that takes control of 100% of EVERYTHING on your computer, making it IMPOSSIBLE to un-install, trying to FORCE YOU TO PURCHASE IT (which, to me, means that it is CLEARLY not a good-enough product to merit honest purchases that are not STRONG-ARMED by the extorting creators/marketers. Shameful, disgusting, abhorrent unethical business practices make me SICK. Please do NOT make the mistake of downloading this, it will RUIN YOUR LIFE.
