I prefer SimplyZip. Try doing a Google (or whatever Search Engine you use) search of that name. If you don't find what you're looking for, I would be happy to upload it to Rapidshare for you.

Winrar's my first choice, although not freeware, IZarc is however, and second on my list.

I use TugZip
http://www.tugzip.com

Its free and just as good as WinRAR, and it also does many other things.

I would choose WinRAR because it supports most (if not all) compression formats, including some programs. It is also free (with a nag screen after 40 days).

I'm always using WinRAR. It supports most file formats. If it has to be free I would choose 7zip .

WinRar is faster than 7-zip, and better for zip. 7-zip i designed for 7z. WinRar
you can use after 40 days, but this is not legal
I don`t know what i am looking :P

i think kgb archiver is pretty good, but the down side is that it has high system requirements

KGB archiver is just a modified ZIP package, plus extra compression, for normal packaging is WinRAR or WinZIP enough.

KGB is big s**t, It very slow and compression is not the best, better is 7-zip.

I've been using WinRAR for a long time now, and it works great (in my opinion)!

I tend to use WinRAR and 7zip exclusively these days. But for the longest time, IZArc was my AIO of choice.
