WinRAR is another good alternative to WinZip since that also support other types of archive files. WinRAR download and support. WinRAR is a powerful Windows tool to compress and decompress zip, rar and many other formats: Download now

I knew it was seen at SorceForge some time back. The comparisons at this site are worth the look however between various programs. 7-Zip | The Best Zip Compression Utility

That is one to keep track of there for sure. I have someone asking for portable apps quite often!

As for WinRar the trial doesn't have a time limit. You simply have to click the continue button until getting the full version. That goes right on both the 64bit as well as the 32bit XP, Vista, 7 without problems as a good alternate.

Someone asked me once about how to run another OS while booted on someone else's machine and running Windows without installing anything. The answer?
Portable Virtual Box! (run from flash drive)

Hi Night Hawk,

That is TRUE, not a joke.

I did it 4~5 years ago. Running Linux, full version, on an USB thumb drive. It worked seamlessly. 4~5 years ago the USB thumb drive was very expensive. I have to make heavy compression on the OS for installing the complete Linux OS on a 1G thumb drive. On running the Linux OS on another PC (of course it must support boot at USB drive) heavy and quick decompression was necessary. You can find all necessary stuffs on Open Source, free to use.

I haven't tested Windows portable. I think it should work but needs a big size USB thumb drive for installation. I have no idea on the speed in running portable Windows.

I did OpenOffice portable before on an USB thumb drive. It also works without problem but slow.
