    Also not free. 7zip can unpack rar files, it cannot create them though.

    Depending on what is needed, here are the three that I have used: (all free)
    1. ZipGenius
    2. IZArc
    3. 7zip

    7-Zip is a good and freeware. You can also get your hands on the free version of WinRAR which was 3.51. It was given absolutely free by RAR Labs in past. :)

    7zip is what I have been using for a long time now, since moving from WinRAR. I find that it does everything all the other programs do and more, it is also free. It may not be able to create RAR files but it can create even better compressed 7z files. Or since most people still never heard of 7z or RAR then just use the .zip extension.

    I bought Winzip in 1998.
    They made a big mistake of recharging from I think version 10 onwards.
    Now a big fall in customers .
    Fouled up a good product.
