Image:Tool tip: ExtractNowUnzipping files has become something we do almost daily. The build in windows (XP and Vista) unzipper sucks is very slow. WinZip, and old time favorite, is rather bulky. Some years ago I discovered a freeware tool called 'ExtractNow'.
It only does extraction (no compression), but is very fast and nicely integrated. Some of the features I particularly like:

  • Supports ZIP, RAR, ISO, BIN, IMG, IMA, IMZ, 7Z, ACE, JAR, GZ, LZH, LHA, TAR, SIT archive formats
  • Drag and drop files or folders from Windows Explorer to extract them
  • Simple user interface and sleek design in a small package
  • Delete files or close program after extraction options
  • Extract files into current directory, named folder, or favorite folder of choice
  • Integrates with Windows Explorer via special context menu items
Give it a try, you won't regret it.
