I want to install the "Autoruns" and I see it needs a "zip reader" such as winzip. Are there any programs that are free? Winzip is $30.

I am still using 8.1, small and still works fine.

It has a nag if you don't buy it but still works.

Xp has a native unzip function but I hate it.

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Agree with Wildabeast, 7 Zip is one of the best freebies. So is ZipGenius

Use winrar as an alternate of winzip. You can also use winzip as a trail version by downloading from internet. They give 15 days trail.
