Well, this has to be the millionth thread where I complained about not having a good comp. Biut this will be the last until next winter, because my Mom's Christams Bonus isn't enough. She wanted to pay off the credit card and have enough money left over to buy my computer parts, but because her company's sales dropped due to PKWare, she won't be able to. I have to wait until next Christams. :mad:

(btw, for those of you who don't know my Mom works for Winzip. PKWare is one of her competetors.)

I'll have to save up and buy the parts, one by one...:(

Winzip because the most common form of compression is .zip.

Winzip rocks! I don't know why winzip sales are dropping cause of PKWare, I've never even heard of PKWare before. Good luck with some new computer parts.

I am using winzip version 8 I believe, it is a free download from the web, is a paid for version better? I like winzip and am very happy using it, but like most programs due to the fact that my financial situation; is well no situation, I tend to need programs and applications to be free.
and yes I can relate to wanting a new computer. I was actaully in a computer store and saw KotoR on the shelf, and thought, well maybe I should actually owna Star Wars game; but the 1 gig mhz minimum requirement bleww that idea. my HAL9000 is not quite up to snuff anymore. which is a shame cause MYST has a new gae called Uru and I wont be able to play it either.

anyhow I did not know your mom worked for winzip, its good to see winzip has a postive hiring practice for women, native americans and eskimo's:)

I use Winzip and Winrar.. But Winzip gets annoying sometime because it takes a long time to unzip large files. :(

Well winzip but I use winrar for rar files and huge files (it compresses a bit better) :p

I use WinRar exculisively. It handles .zip for compression and decompression and can decompress many, many file types including (I think) some of the older ones like .pak and .arj. ARJ used to be my alltime fav though.

.rar files compress a little better than .zip files.

Win zip.

Doesn't it automatically uncompress files in win xp. I never noticed what I use on my home computer because of this.

Yeah, I also use WinRAR. ZIP and RAR files are the two common forms of compression that I come across.
