Editors' Review

+
This freeware ZIP-file extractor doesn't have much to offer most users, but you'll need it to open archives encrypted with PKWare products such as PKZIP or SecureZIP. ZIP Reader's interface couldn't be more laconic; you simply select which file to extract and where. You can also access the program by right-clicking an archive in Windows Explorer. ZIP Reader supports popular archive formats besides ZIP, including RAR, TAR, and GZIP. In our tests, however, it scrambled the names of files written in Cyrillic letters. If you need ZIP Reader, you probably already know it, and don't need convincing. But if you don't use PKWare software, you're probably better off with another, more full-featured utility.

"Works like a charm"

 |  Version: ZIP Reader 14.0

Pros

Easy to use
Easy to download
Real quick to open files
Does not have bloatware or unwanted programs included with the download you have to un-click to avoid downloading something you don't want

Cons

None that I've found so far.

Summary

This is a little jewel. I downloaded it so I could open compressed files of albums of pics of my grandkids that my daughters sometimes compress and e-mail to me, or for misc files I might download. It open just about anything - zip files, rar, torrent files, and many more. Best of all it's free
