Editors' review

Though it offers little new functionality this program easily zips and unzips files using a wizard interface. Unzipping the file is then a matter of answering eZip Wizard's questions: which files to extract from the zip file, where to put them, delete the original zip, and create an uninstall script. It's the last function that makes eZip a better choice than Windows standard unzip functionality. The uninstall script helps novice users quickly remove the unzipped files. Zipping a file or directory is easy with this program. Users follow a series of dialog boxes to add files, force unzip directory structures, and add a intro message or password to the final zipped file. eZip Wizard includes a function to split large files into a chosen number of subfiles. The program automatically creates a batch file to consolidate the split file. After the trial period ends eZip Wizard continues to function as a file unzipper. We found the program useful for novices, but the question and answer structure is limiting for advanced users.

    "user beware... adware!"

    November 20, 2011   |   By tigerstripe-ch

    Version: eZip Wizard 3.0

    Pros

    i'm not sure yet... perhaps i'll be able to get back to you on that.

    Cons

    the first thing i noticed during the download was that in order to go on to the next step, not only was i provided with the terms and conditions and the privacy policy, but i had to click a box agreeing to install a free coupon app called 'DropDownDeals'. my husband and i don't use coupons, normally, as we buy the cheapest and usually most generic products out there (okay, except for feminine and very inexpensive tv dinners). we don't NEED coupons, and don't have the time to sift through the myriad of coupons out there. i don't want to have to agree to such an app, yet i need an unzip app with a WIZARD since i'm not as tech as i once was. i only hope this browser will be as easy to delete or not use as the ASK and YAHOO have been in the past!! in step 4, my AVG Free 2012 picked up the Adware in the program as a potentially unwanted program, asked me what to do with it, and i said to put it in the vault... :)

    Summary

    adware involved. unable to test as of yet. zipped folder for which i downloaded this program i have subsequently lost on my computer and am trying to download again and open with this program but my computer cannot find this program... perhaps i shouldn't have put that one file that was adware in my AVG free 2012's vault?? who knows... i don't usually download zipped programs anyways. Good luck everyone! :)

    "Easy use - level of compressing is easily selected."

    February 08, 2007   |   By oreo2123

    Version: eZip Wizard 3.0

    Pros

    Full control over compression - it even warns you that the more you compress, the longer it will take. Also lets you split the zip file into smaller parts if needed.

    Cons

    It does run a little on the slow side at full compression, but hey...it really compresses it. This program worked where winrar didn't.

    "easy to use"

    June 11, 2006   |   By percepia

    Version: eZip Wizard 3.0

    Pros

    I always read the terms and conditions of use and I really liked there will be no monitoring of my computer and no extra downlods. I don't have to worry about extra tool bars.
