just installed it, went in nice and easy and works well for unzipping pretty big RAR files.
after years of using winzip they've finally found a way to put an end to their free trial, was very nice software, but can't afford to pay for yet another piece of software.
I've had a look around and from the reviews I've read Bandizip seems to be a good one to give a go:
