Default Extracting files

Are there programs for extracting files from self installing programs and windows installer progs. Winrar doesnt always show the extract options. Just wanted to know if theres like a universal extractor

I use winrar. I right clck the file and pick extract here. the window extracting tool will run from extraction.

winrar can extract anything thats an archive. If you cna extract it with winrar, you cant extract it at all.

Stick to Winzip. Although I prefer Winrar, Winzip seems to be doing something right as it is still the standard used by companies and other people.

WinZip works fine from me. Tucows.com is a good place to download it.

Also throwing in another suggestion:
Aladdin Stuffit Expander is something else that I've used before.
