Editors' Review

+

This venerable tool packs plenty of features for simple compression needs, along with superior security tools for advanced compression and backup-file management. You can run WinZip using the optional Wizard interface for a step-by-step guide to easy compression, or you can use the classic interface to set file and folder compressions to your specifications.

You also can change the view to a Windows Explorer format, making it easy to navigate your hard drive when creating a compressed archive. The AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) encryption method provides excellent security for your files, with the option for both 128-bit (lower-level) and 256-bit (higher-level) security. We like the flexible drag-and-drop support, allowing you to drag files to and from the interface which zips or unzips them automatically.

We also like the contextual menus (right-click) that enable you to perform most of WinZip's functions on the fly, including complex tasks like zipping a file and automatically attaching it to an e-mail for quick delivery. Overall, WinZip is among the best compression programs available, providing all the features necessary to create easy backups, compress e-mail files, and manage downloaded files from the Internet.

    "Installs Malware!"

    October 16, 2014   |   By crm115

    Version: WinZip 9.0

    Pros

    It will install something that unzips things

    Cons

    It will also install Malware. It installs a browser hijacker called Astromenda.

    Summary

    Don't install this. It installs malware. If you want any more proof of the shadiness of this download, look at the positive reviews. Some of them are just copy and paste jobs presumably from one person lazily submitting multiple reviews.
