I need a zip/unzip utility. Mostly just to unzip compressed files.
I googled for one and the choices are many and confusing. Not to mention everyone wants 20 to 30 bucks.
Is one program better than the others? I noticed that some open more types of files than others. How often would I come across some of those file types, like LHZ?
I may use a compression utility if I had one, but I don't know that I would use it all that often. What I would really like is a free unzipper. Does such a thing exist?

If you are using windows xp, it has an unzip utility. I don't think you need to buy something unless you are going to be zipping the files. I may be wrong but, you can always download the trial version of winzip (I think that's the name) for unzipping files if you are using an earlier version of windows.

WinRAR and WinZip are the most used, both zip and unzip files....but Xp has a winzip integrated IIRC....

Well, ...................
I feel stupid.
I guess that because there was no "program" listed, I assumed there was no utility to unzip with. But, after what you two said, I tried a right click and found an unzip "wizard".

Thank you Bunnyears and Sovkiller.

Don't feel bad, that happen to all of us....but always try first, you never know what you can do, until you try, right?
