Better but not great 4 stars by gimpguy Jul 30, 2011 (Read all my 1159 reviews)
This is my updated review from prior. The Good: The interface is much better, user wise and graphically. The speed of compression hasn't increased or decreased, still very quick though. The Bad: Upon install, you get a series of 3 icons on your desktop, follow on twitter, join on Facebook and of course the program icon. This I found extremely annoying and it may not be a toolbar, but I but I don't want them on my desktop, be it to join or not. Also, when you create a new archive, ZG does not recognize word or text documents in the list. Finally after manually going through and adding a few files to an archive, when I went to extract them, ZG froze up. I tested it twice, same thing. Update:(got portable working) Oddly enough, I rebooted and my desktop icons were all hidden and my pictures on my desktop gone as well as other program shortcuts. Had some issues with choppy running after reboot, cleaned the registry, got rid of a couple of left over ZG keys, ran much better. (This is a fresh Win 7 install) It's a great free software with a lot of options and I do recommend it, BUT it's still not close to Haozip or others and very buggy. Will keep watching this one though. show Review details
No portable version 3 stars by TwoEars Feb 01, 2010 (Read all my 26 reviews)
I used ZipGenius for a while but dropped it when it became clear that no portable version would ever be released. Beside that is was a bit bloated. show Review details
The software developer responded to this review on Mar 07, 2010: That is not true. ZipGenius can be transformed to portable with a simple drag and drop: just move zipgenius.exe, the DLLs in ZipGenius program folder and the lang and skin subfolder to a USB drive and it will work everywhere.
About the best one around 4 stars by H82BFat Jan 09, 2010 (Read all my 2 reviews)
Right off, its the best decompression tool I have tried in more than a decade. One thing that kept me from giving a better rating is the cluttering with unrelated add-ons, like the password manager, backup utility, and the slide-show tool. Instead of expanding the program with unrelated additions, it might be a better idea to include a recovery tool for corrupted files. This would make this program truly outstanding. show Review details
