ALZip v6.32 (Free for homeusers)

Has anyone any experience of either of the above mentioned programs?

I see no replies relative to ALZip. I have used it for about two years.
It does what I want easily and flawlessly. It lacks a "Checkout"
feature, but I find its 'default extract folder' a fully satisfactory
substitute. It is what finally weaned me from Power Archiver's lfv.

7-ZIP

Has anyone any experience of either of the above mentioned programs?

Or alternatively recommend any other RAR unzipping programs?

3 good ones

http://www.tugzip.com/

I prefer Izarc though there have been no updates or changes to the web site
for a long time. Unzips everything.

I have used 7-Zip before & it is an excellent program but it doesn't
support as much file formats as some other freeware archivers.

I recommend QuickZip which can be downloaded from
http://www.quickzip.org/ . QuickZip is a freeware archiver which can
decompress Zip, 7-Zip (*.7z files), Rar, LZH (very popular compression
format on Amiga computers & used a lot over in Japan), Cab, et al.

I've found that the program which does the best job of opening .rar
files is Iceows:

http://www.iceows.com/HomePageUS.html

and I've tried just about everything. Most of the others often messed up
the files or couldn't open them. I used the same .rar test file to find
Iceows. Iceows has worked fine for me ever since.

WinRAR is NOT a freeware program !

Thanks to everyone for all the suggestions for a program to unzip the
RAR file I've downloaded.

Finally plumped for Iceows v4.20b which worked a treat. Just a case of
placing the mouse over the downloaded RAR file press right mouse
button select Iceows from the menu and extract, easy!

I should warn you that there is one bug I've noticed. When you use
Iceows to view the files in a .rar (or any other file, say by mistake as
I've done), the program makes it so that you get a "file being used by
another program" error if you try to perform any action like renaming,
moving or copying the file. This problem will persist until you reboot
or otherwise restart windows.

Still, it's a problem I can live with since, as I said, Iceows is the
only program I found that consistently will successfully extract from
undamaged .rar files.

Strange, I've never run across that issue with ICEOWS on Win98, 98SE,
WinXPH SP1&2 and currently on WinXP Media Center. Just lucky I guess.

Either that or else it might be one of the services that I've disabled
that causes my problem with Iceows. I don't remember having the problem
when I was running ME.

bytheway- mucho graciaoso - ALzips looking good, been having trouble
with ISO/BIN and VDrives. If it'll do image extraction well without the
VD, I'll be happy. don't think i'll need look @7zip

http://www.soft32.com/Download/free-trial/ALZip/4-76265-4.html

reconnects to ALTools site if it hiccups, use a multitreader like
DLExpert .91

otherwise good alternative (couldn't hit altool's net this morn)

also, do yourself a favor, get and try this AlTools DVD (?
VIDEO_TS.IFO) player (just now trying it on AVIs - hope hope it does my
zillion CCE>TMPG-Encodes) - this thing is really really looking good so
far)

just got a 32" LCD across the room on a media computer i threw together
past few weeks - killer, can't wait to give ALShow a shot

dedicated Media Classic user/player up 'till now but looking for
alternatives. MPC somewhat clunky old-style interface feel. otherwise
good (best). Didn't go for Zoom Player, newer prgy, newer thread - too
cumbersome with options (like MPC in a sense, but moreso). Hell, even
with a 32" LCD 5' in front of my face, I'm not going through Zoom's
tweaking labrynth. Twirleybird's delight/option save (oops). I got
the damn 32" to relax and ALshow just may help in that regard.
Something smooth, as in slick. IR keyboard navigation like fast
forward/back is nice, but aspect screen stretching is imperative (not
doing 1368x768 but 1024x768/60hz). Make one just like my old APEX or a
newer Phillips tabletop.

hm what else recently out of here for kudos, oh yea - The Godfather /
MP3 and more type tagline thingy. My MP3 TagStudio manipulations were
definately getting dated. O - thankyou, thankyou kind soul for such a
utilitarian freeware recommendation.

what else... FOOBAR. no nonsense for 160G of MP3s and three valvued
guitar amps. ditto. getting to where I can't stand those zillion
miniscule "skins" to play at 1900x1600 on the latest greatest 15"
laptop while crusing Denny's or McDonalds.

what else else - somebody posting fishtanks galore, gonna haveto find
that thread again and take a looksee on the Olevia LCD.

'well - goodby all you punks, stay young, just stopped in to say hi'

*AHEM* *I* didn't recommend that program, the OP
([email protected]) mentioned it. You slipped up in attribution.
