This is an interesting Archiver. It has the potential to be better than the other archivers out there. In my opinion, it has the most password security options of all the archivers. The main drawback to this program is its user interface. Its like they have multiple entries for the same options on different parts of the setup, making it confusing. They also uses the word "Directory" instead of displaying an icon for a directory like it should.
9.15 Beta (Aug 20, 2010)
For those of you (like me) who can't stand the UGLY icons in this program. I found a free program that will let you change the icons to much nicer looking icons. They have a lot to choose from also. Its called 7-Zip Theme Manager.
One huge drawback to 7-zip is that it won't let you create a RAR archives. I don't know if that has to do with license problems, or they just don't add it. I prefer WinRAR myself, but don't want to pay for it.

Another update from me on this stupid program. Like Ramses said farther down below. This product has LIMITED activations. I was skeptical of his comment when I read it, but it has just happened to me. I had trouble getting this program to work correctly under the NTFS file format and had to install it several times... now it tells me I can no longer use my serial number to activate it. That is complete BS. Why is the FBI not raiding companies like this that steal from customers? They have no problem raiding warez groups who they claim steal from companies. At least warez groups don't steal actual money.

Guess I'm the only one to review this program. Its been 2 years since my last post here :) But wanted to say I still think this is the best program of its type. It also now supports the NTFS file system and the "Alternate Data Streams" used with NTFS, plus you can also search for the hidden Alternate Data Streams (inside the "privacy guard" option). This program is also good for clearing out your temporary files directory of all the junk that takes up space that never seems to get deleted... even the locked files which it erases upon reboot.

Like another person here, I like Firefox, but don't like this email client much. What I hate is how it quotes a reply... well actually it doesn't even quote, it just pastes the reply with no indentation whatsoever, or nothing to mark where the quote starts/ends. Don't believe me, then send yourself a quoted reply. And your reply starts at the bottom of the quote instead of the top like most people are used to.
It also should have a totally different name, as its using names of previous browsers.

Just like the mention in the article. By preventing the hacked versions from upgrading, will just cause all the Window viruses to *never* get fixed for the people running unlicensed copies. It affects everyone due to the fact of the virus/trojan scanning everyone else on the internet.
But then again I don't even know why Microsoft takes this stance, as no matter what they do, it WILL be hacked again. Its in their best interest to allow the security upgrade.
As for all of us who have paid for our software. I think Microsoft owes us an upgrade cd with the sp2 already installed. Its a real pain installing these sp's because it takes so long to install the service pack seperately each time we re-install windows.

I'm currently running this beta program after I received an offer to test it in an email. It seems like a very nice program and is highly rated, although this beta has an annoying popup everytime you bootup the computer, which asks you to upgrade to the full version.

Actually the googles toolbar IS spyware. It says so right in their terms. Any time a program has to contact a homepage of its company with the site you visited, its spyware.
I wouldn't be surprised if MSN does it also.

I use IE most of the time now, but Mozilla Firebird also some.
Mozilla/Firebird will never become popular until it starts working with EVERYTHING like IE does. Many times I have visited a webpage with Mozilla/Firebird, only to have plugins not work at all. Then clicking on the link to install a plugin also not working.
Mozilla/Firebird needs to come with ALL the plugins included in the setup files. Even if it requires seperate installs for each program, at least you would have everything you needed.
