I voted WinRAR

You don't get the annoying "use evaluation buy help" window that pops up when you use WinRAR.

Also WinRAR can open more types of compressed files, (tar balls, gz files etc)

It also supports a higher rate of encryption if i recall correctly... to sum it up, WinRAR is the compression tool of champions Smile

I voted for WinZip. I have WinRar too, but I find WinZip to be really easy to use so I'll stick with it.

I've tried to edit the options for the poll - just look at the mess I've made. Wall Bashing
I give up!!!

I find it hard to believe though that everyone keeps crying out for help with installing a/c, yet no-one uses extraction tools. What kind of magic is at play???

I feel honoured to join such an elite group of bunglers of which you, my friend Greekman have the dubious honour of being the founder.
To my defence I'd like to remind you that I am the Baby regarding everything that is even remotely related to 'computing' - where on the other hand you my esteemed friend ... are the expert!!! (No, I won't even mention battery operated radios and flightsticks Nope )

Gotcha Tee Hee
