"Long time WinZip user"

November 28, 2014  |  By madmanperez

 |  Version: WinZip 19

Pros

Easy to use. Upgrade assurance has made my WinZip experience simple ad easy.
Small upgrade fee get new releases as they become available. I just ignore all the additional e-mails for fee downloads of system utilities and the like. I all ready have a slew of utilities (some free others not so) that perform most if not all of the features touted by these WinZip system utilities.

Program performs as it always has, great. can't say I use all the new fetures, but what I do use works perfectly.

Cons

Absolutely none

"Upgrade assurance not honored"

November 16, 2014  |  By irqthecat

 |  Version: WinZip 19

Pros

None at all

Cons

Unable to register

Summary

Ordered and paid for 18.5 Pro with upgrade assurance. Tried to upgrade to 19 Pro, WinZip refuses to honor my purchased upgrade assurance. They have not responded to any of my follow on e-mails with purchase receipt information. Interesting enough, if previous version registration information is requested online, I get only for WinZip Courier 6.0 which was purchased several years ago. No registration info was provided for registered versions after that.

WinZip is no longer my preferred choice for a file compression utility

"WinZip has become a den of theives"

November 13, 2014  |  By crtjr

 |  Version: WinZip 19

Pros

unzips programs

Cons

fake you out with the free download which is really a tryware, so after the period expires, you can't use it. So, now I have to unload it for something really free. They just don't get that file compression technology is not enough o build a company on so they play these games and those like other people reported. Then when you see some of their canned positive reviews, it let's you know how really shady they've become... use it to bring in customers not cheat or hook them into buying stuff they don't want.

Summary

Forget the frustration, go elsewhere, they're just as good... its basic file compression for crying out loud.

"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.

"BEWARE - installs malware!"

September 10, 2014  |  By billyr2

 |  Version: WinZip 18.5

Pros

Can unzip files.....

Cons

But at the expense of loading you up with malware like Astromenda that hijacks your browser home page and search bar.

Summary

Winzip used to be good - USED TO. Now they bundle their software with malware. I downloaded it a few days ago and it installed Astromenda on to my PC, hijacking my browser home page and search bar. Never again WinZip. Stay clear folks - there are plenty of other options out there.

"Don't use it"

August 15, 2014  |  By ajgbali

 |  Version: WinZip 18

Pros

It does actually unzip files... It seems to do a whole lot of other stuff to, but that's not what I needed it for....

Cons

1. Slowed computer to a crawl.
2. Installed adware, despite my care during installation.
3. Turned off AVG antivirus

Summary

The slowness made the program unusable and the adware and antivirus disruption makes me completely mistrust it.
CNET - condoning programs that act like this with no mention of the cons makes me lose trust in your recommendations too. Are you so confident in your usefulness that you're just not bothered anymore?
