WinZip software for Win-7

I got a free trial period from WinZip file compression unzipper and now they want me to buy the software but I see that the Cnet website has the same download for free. What gives?

WinZip is a program you are supposed to pay for, but I think the vast majority of people do not as it doesn't ever seen to quit working.

Personally, i use 7zip. it's free, is 64-bit and just works.

You can also use WinRAR which has a 40-day trial period but still lets you use it afterwards. It doesn't even warn you unless you open the window, a context extraction just plain works.

I havent used winzip in a long time. Mainly use 7zip now. Nearly 26 for an archiving program is silly when there are very decent free ones available.
