I am in search of Free zip software for Windows XP, I belong to a book swap and many of the files are compressed . I need something that works well and is free. I use Google Chrome and IE 8 depending on which email I am using. Any suggestions?

    Install the free Linux operating system over your outdated and buggy Windows, then either use FileRoller for a GUI.or zip(1) in the terminal; they are both included.

    I'd go for 7zip, it opens everything and it's ultra lightweight. WinRAR and WinZIP are (from memory) neither free nor lightweight.

    WinRar is what you need. It comes with a 30 day trial version which lasts forever.

    Not only zip but you get a better rar compression for free too.
