Default zipping programs

Anyone know of any good free software for zipping and unzipping .rar and .zip files? I have something but it expires in like 5 days.

Try WinRAR from www.download.com

Im pretty sure that it is still freeware and that it wont expire...

winrar is the best... it will support almost any type of zip file, and it is shareware, but mine has never asked for an activation or registration...

here is there home site...

I also agree that Winrar is overall the best and easiest to use
but Im not sure of the limitations of the unregistered version.

I registered mine.

If Im not mistaken, 7-zip is the popular "freeware" utility.

I use both Winzip and Winrar. Never had a problem with either program.
