Editors' Review

+
Here's a concept: software that works for you, not against you. This handy and free ZIP application lets you customize to your heart's content so you can get the most out of the program. Program functions can be accessed either from a large, colorful menu of buttons on the main toolbar, or from a drop-down menu. If you don't like the look of either, you can change them to suit your preferences. ZipGenius works with close to two dozen file formats. Other useful options include protecting archives with a password and working directly with CD-R/RW drivers. Overall, this is a great resource for creating and maintaining ZIP files.

"BEWARE! VERY INTRUSIVE!"

March 03, 2013  |  By Thetinkthank

 |  Version: ZipGenius Standard Edition 6.3.2.3110

Pros

So Annoying I never got to the point of trying it. Frankly I don't care WHAT it can do!

Cons

Plasters all kinds of Horrible Shortcuts On YOUR desktop that are near IMPOSSIBLE to remove! Permission is to place A, GET THAT? >>>A<<< means a Single shortcut ZIPDUMMIES! Heres a few: Join ZIPGENIUS! what?!! and Follow ZIPGENIUS on Twitter! PWAHAHAHA! also Follow ZIPGENIUS on Google! Arghh... REVO uninstalled it cya

Summary

This salesware is so annoying that I joined CNET just to comment. And don't tell me you get what you pay for. This is a "thing" that explodes crap all over your computer without your permission. Just because your not paying someone doesn't give them license to do rude & abusive things. Found it on CNET so I cant trust CNET either goodbye for good.

"Actually ... not reliable at all"

February 06, 2012  |  By not0000

 |  Version: ZipGenius Standard Edition 6.3.0.2400

Pros

It is free. Unless you consider your time and efforts and those you work with to be of some value. In that case it is not even free.

Cons

Unreliable. Slow, not to encrypt ... after all, the author didn't write that piece ... the GUI is sloowww. I ran this program on several machines with different processors an OSes. It's behavior was unpredictable. Mostly it crashed a lot Windows 7, XP SP3, it didn't matter. It also doesn't seem to uniformly respect the fact that users don't want to be in an administrator account to run it. Sometimes it would simply freeze attempting to open a file it created. Other times, even the errors returned navigating its own menu structure were unpredictable.

During the install one gets to opt out of desktop icons. Forget it. When done not only the desktop but the start menu are littered with half a dozen social networking icons. Gee thanks! I really, really can't wait to get your Tweets!

Summary

I'd rather pay a couple bucks to get something that actually works. Possibly this is a student project. Using it is like death by a thousand cuts.

@RR1K, while one can do these things with this utility, one must ask: 'So what?' One can do these things with every one of over a dozen other zip utilities. Utilities that actually work reliably, are truly simple to use, and are not a cluttered pile of nonsense.

"Works so far."

October 14, 2011  |  By mattstaggs

 |  Version: ZipGenius Standard Edition 6.3.2.3100

Pros

I used it to unzip some files in .rar format. That worked. It was free. It put a shortcut on the desktop to "like" the product on twitter and facebook. Easily removed. For a free product that works I think that is fair play.

Cons

I haven't noticed any significant problems.

Summary

Only used once or twice, but it works.

"Currently bundled with Incredimail it appears."

October 01, 2011  |  By garyjg

 |  Version: ZipGenius Standard Edition 6.3.2.3100

Pros

Good program without Incredimail.

Cons

Currently bundled with Incredimail.

Summary

I've no idea why but the two occasions I've downloaded this program I've also triggered an Incredimail download (and if you've had Incredimail on your PC you'll know what a nightmare it is). I can only assume that Incredimail is being bundled with this program. Cannot recommend it for that reason as both times it's been a complete nightmare trying to get Incredimail off of my PC.
