Replaced WinZip

February 10, 2012

I noted at the end of December that I was pretty fed up with WinZip. That feeling has not changed. How could it after they installed a toolbar against my wishes that was almost viral in nature? How could I after I found so many things installed in the WinZip directory that were not things I purchased or was even told about during the install process (like the "registry cleaner" and such)?

I went on a search for a new tool. I looked at 7-Zip and PowerArchiver. I finally settled on PowerArchiver. Both are good tools, but PowerArchiver has a few more features that I will use.

If you're looking for a good replacement for WinZip, I think you should take a good look at both of these tools.
