"healt of pc"

What do you like best?

a PC tool that is useful in addition to anti-virus software, but like all similar programs to maintain the health of a PC, it is only as good as the vendor keeps on top of the updates. It cleans up junk files, traces of internet tracking, driver updates, and registry issues. as with any software of this type, you must install the latest update before running it the first time as you know the CD in the package is probably out of date. Doing this, I have had no problems except with Intel HD graphics and WiDi drivers where there were newer drivers that WinZip hadn't caught yet. Amazon had a great price on a three user (or 3 PC) version. Remember, this is a service you have to renew annually, so this is the most economical way of doing so. Recommended.

What do you dislike?

I seem to have one issue with my computer shutting down when I watch videos. Otheutility software did not seem to solve the problem at all

Recommendations to others considering the product:

recomended for all of pc s

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

cleans up junk files, traces of internet tracking, driver updates

"very good for increasing the system speed and performance. very efficient optimizer."

What do you like best?

very good system cleaner and speed booster. Provides very essential features like security, data recovery, highly diagnostic in finding the issues in one scan, high performance, registry cleaning, hard disk cleaning etc which very effectively optimizes the system. Simple and organised UI.

What do you dislike?

sometimes, it increases the boot time of system and sometimes cannot make difference between minor and major bugs. Duplicates some windows functionality. Does not provide advanced functionalities. nevertheless, provides highly effective cleaning of system.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Highly efficient for optimizing the system, cleaning and boosting the speed. Highly diagnostic in finding issues. Powerful maintenance tool for system.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

it lacks some of the advanced tools, and uses more space. Finds most of the issues in one scan and fixes them. Apart from PC maintenance , cleans and optimizes complete system hard disk, registry's etc, provides data recovery, good security.

"Great to clean your computer of junk"

I haven't found anything to dislike in this product.

"program suitable for those with limited computer skills"

What do you like best?

The program is small in size, has a clean interface, works efficiently in the background, fairly straightforward to use, has a fairly inexpensive yearly fee, has many useful features such as disk cleaner and optimizer, and backup & recovery functions and maintenance scheduler. Most of these features are similar to Norton utilities suite. I downloaded this on my computer and I use it occassionally to keep my system in good shape.

What do you dislike?

Most of the features are already included into Windows 10 for those computer savvy and don't want to spend the money. You can usually use msconfig to remove a lot of startup programs to make your computer run more efficiently. Also the yearly subscription model isn't great if you just want to own the product since you have to pay every year or else certain functions (such as the driver updater) will no longer work.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I wouldn't recommend this software suite to others if your company has a decent IT department as there are better tools they can use to make your computer more efficient .

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The Winzip System Utilities Suite helps me keep my computer running in tip top shape and reduces lag on my computer all packaged in a clean interface without having to look for all the similar Windows functions available in Windows 10.

"It is a good tool but for most users it is not needed"

What do you like best?

It is an easy to use tool to extract and compress data files. In fact it was my go-to tool several years ago but nowadays the tools built into Windows work for most of my needs. The UI is easy to use and figure out.

What do you dislike?

Again it works well and has nice features, but overall it is not overly needed. Most users are able to use the tools in Windows and for development we use different tools. It nice that it works with password protected zip files.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Windows tools do not really work with password protected zip files so using WinZip or WinRar is needed for those.

"Optimal maintenance for your computer"

What do you like best?

This software clean extremely well the log files and also recovers storage space. It has a driver update tool that is very useful.

What do you dislike?

In terms of performance slowed down the start of Windows instead of optimizing it.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend using it especially to clean the hard drive, not to touch issues associated with Windows because it is not your strong point.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use the WinZip System Utilities Suite to guarantee maintenance of the hard disks of our computers, a job that does very well.

"More issues than solutions"

What do you like best?

It has a lot of different computer solutions (clearing space, scanning, etc.) all in one package. Instead of installing a variety of software, you can simply use this one for all.

What do you dislike?

The Suite took up so much CPU while running, and increased the initial bootup of the computers by quite a bit. Error and recovery scans were not always helpful

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Although ease of installation and simplicity of the package may seem great, you might want to scope out better options, which may simplify your life more in the long run.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were using the WinZip Suite as a catch all for scans and whatnot on the computers, as it could be used to diagnose problems, scan for viruses, and also clear up space.

"A bit of a learning curve, but works really well"

What do you like best?

It is extremely easy to use, once one learns how it handles files it unzips.

What do you dislike?

I think I'd like to be able to customize it more, but that might be my limits.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I upload files to several websites for students to download.

"Ubiquitous Software for Archival Use"

What do you like best?

WinZip has been around for years and is easy to and obtain . It arcuives in a variety of formats and can be of different levels of usefulness depending your archiving needs.

What do you dislike?

While not specifically Winzip's fault, it's often not advertised that certain files are better than others for archiving. For instance video files and image files don't benefit spacewise from archiving them.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Archival and smart digital space usage. Implementation of password protection by WinZip for safeguarding of data in transit.

"Easy-to-use Unzip Tool"

What do you like best?

No bells and whistles, just focused purely on getting the job done. Simple and basic UI not overcrowded by unnecessary features

What do you dislike?

Although the UI is basic and easy to use it is not very aesthetically pleasing to the eye, making it feel as if the program is still running soley in the realm of 10 years ago.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using WinZip to compress file sizes to make them more manageable for sharing, both in email and other cloud drives. It is also being used to open those previously compressed files for opening and editing in addition to reducing autorun features to allow start-up times to be reduced.

"Solid Business Software"

What do you like best?

WinZip is extremely easy to use and well-integrated with Windows. It's easy to create and share zip files and allows access to advanced processing options not offered by Windows built-in zip features, such as AES encryption, text encoding, self extraction, multi-part files, and social/cloud integration.

What do you dislike?

WinZip does not ship with command line utilities by default, and the normal zip file format still allows viewing the file names and folder structure of encrypted data. This is a weakness of zip files, although WinZip also provides the ZipX format.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We rely on the encryption to exchange sensitive proprietary data with customers and third parties.
