Just how hard should finding this be...

Here's what I need and I tried Winzip, PKzip, powerarchiver 2001,
izarc, zipgenius 5 and 6, 7-zip, extractnow, and none of them do it as
i want it; I want an application/utility that'll automatically
unzip/unrar an archive file just by me clicing it into a subfolder
with the same name as the archive and then eventually open an explorer
window of the destination unzipped/unrarred subfolder contents . I
don't want to go through windows, dialogs or checkbox, I don't want to
have to click anything to get there.

None of them do it like that. I want to indicate my preferences just
once, not every time I open a zip/rar file.

ICEOWS has a option under the sys tab, that sound to be what you are looking
for, I'm not sure what this option is called in english (I have the german
verion), but it's under 'Systemintegration'.

Good luck.

Ahhhh, the mentality of the freeware user. An app that does every
whim and wish; without lightening their wallet. Spend some money
for once in your life.

I'm using zip genius at the moment and it does this via Explorer.

That is, you right click the file, select zip genius, select extract
to folder of the same filename, and poof, you're back in explorer.
Right?

OK, smartass, please tell us what $ware program does this.

I think your best bet is to write a .cmd script (or .bat, if you're
using Win9x) which calls unzip.exe with appropriate switches and then
calls explorer.exe; once it's working ok, you would then need to make
it the default action for double-clicking .zip files. One of the GUI
utilities you mention may be substituted for unzip, but I don't know
what switches are available in any of them.

Winzip, PKzip, and also powerzip, picozip... all these are not free
and still they didn't do it.

ICEOWS does it exactly how i wanted it; what a fabulous software.
