7-Zip v9.22 beta

I was having a problem with
WinZip and then a few days later it was telling me to send money. I de-installed it and installed 7-zip which I have had on my home system for about 2 years and man it always works without a hiccup and is hi performance. Get it, you wont regret it.

7-Zip v4.65

Purkaa ohan OK. En oikein pidä käyttöliittymästä ja muutenkin toiminnassa on joitakin puutteita, kuten moniosaisia paketteja purkaessa pitää alkaa purku juuri oikeasta paketista, kun winRARilla ohjelma osaa alkaa purkamisen joka tapauksessa. En aio enää käyttää tätä.

7-Zip v4.57

Very good, easy to use and more user friendly than WinZIP.

7-Zip v4.55 Beta

7-Zip v4.32

I prefer this software over WinRar only because it is so easy to use and it is open source. It works well on windows Xp Home.
