Cool Winzip

You need to go to and download the Winzip program. I believe it's 8.0 now. It installs in startup so whenever a zip file comes along it will automaticaly deal with it.

You don't need to buy it, you can simply download the evaluation version. But of course, if you intend to use forever you should buy it....

Well then itís a defective .zip file. If you downloaded and installed WinZip and the zipped file wont open the file is corrupt or isnít a zip file. Someone may have posted something that was miss marked. What does the window say that comes up win you double click on the zip files you want to open?
