Default Vista 64 bit

Hello all,

Iv just changed from 32bit vista to 64bit, does anyone know some compression software that allows the right click function such as:

So far in vista iv installed tugzip and normally you can right click a file and choose extract to c: etc but I cant in vista 64 bit is there anyway to enable this?

Also I would prefer to get a third party firewall but I don't no any that support vista 64 bit, suggestions?

I also know that Zone Alarm has finally got their firewall (free version as well) updated for Vista. So that might work.

I dont know if it is 64 Bit compatable. They dont say on their site. As for the WinRar i thought they had a 64 Bit version available?

Okay according to the WinRar site it does work so that might be your best bet. I dont know of any registry entries that do this buut i could have a look just in case.

I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!

7zip is a good one.

I like 7zip too but on one occasion it could not open a certain type of zip file tugzip could so tugzip has since been my preferred choice . I`ll give winrar another go and zonealarm thanks.
