    I have ZipGenius and i am tired of it failing all the time. I was wondering if there is a better free Zip software out there.

    I find that ALzip is a very good zip program that hasn't let me down yet. It"s free but I don't have the link sorry

    If you have XP, then it has inbuilt Zip functionality, why do you need a third party application?

    Otherwise Alzip to Google finds over 1,000,000 possible downloads...

    7zip has far the best compression rate in 7z format. It's user interface is not very elaborated, though.

    I frequently recommend IZArc, it does a number of popular formats.
