        Okay I was just told by someone one msgr that if you set you PC clock a year ahead when you download it then set it back afterwards the free Winzip won't expire...does that sound okay?

            TotalCommander is a replacement for windows explorer and it has a built in compression facility to deal with zips, rars etc It's cheap to buy but you get an unlimited trial with a nag when you load it up - no biggie

              Windows XP has built-in Zipping Capabilities in Windows Explorer...

              You can also get this as part of Microsoft Plus for Windows 98 and ME.

                I know WindowsXP can open/extract/explore zip files but can it actually create them?

                      WinRAR is not free but sure is infinitely better than WinZip. It has a nag screen that is easily dismissed and does not show up at all when using the shell-integrated functions.

                        Wow I've never seen that before What a ridiculous place to put something like that. They should have a sub-menu like winzip

                          I use it all the time. I have WinRAR installed for everything but .zip files as I really like the Explorer intergration.

                          Right click, go to "New," click "Compressed (zipped) Folder."

                            Exactly, WinRAR is the best and if you buy it, a good investment.
                            The alternative is using the built in zip from windows.

                              I use PowerArchiver: http://powerarchiver.com

                              It can handle ZIP files, RAR files, tar.gz files, and other compressed file types. It can also create them all.
