I had been using Wizip Pro 15.5 (purchased from Amazon as part of the Corel Paintshop X4 package) and was quite satisfied with the performance. A marketing email from Corel invited me to upgrade to version 17 Pro for the bargain price of £12.95. Installation was OK but the performance of my PC slowed dramatically. The culprit seems to be ZipSend which upon installation integrates itself as an add-on to Outlook (you have no choice). Outlook now took up to a minute to load (previously a few seconds) and became virtually unusable, producing various error messages when sending emails. There is no facility to remove ZipSend. I therefore decided to remove Winzip 17 pro (and revert back to 15.5) - that was a chore! There is no uninstall facility with Winzip 17 and using Add/Remove in Control Panel produced a failure of the removal half way through and I had to re-install 17 the go through the whole uninstall again. A final clean-up with RegClean Pro was required to get rid of related registry items. Very disappointing.

This was an excellent product but it has now been completely ruined. Previous versions of WinZip opened an archive very quickly however this has now changed. The entire archive is copied to the temporary folder even before you tell WinZip to do anything to the archive. Obviously if you have a 25GB archive this will slow things down!!!

It works just as well as WinZip ever works but there's nothing new about it so really a waste of money.
