    7zip is all I use. It's free and it's the best imo, also supports unpacking just about anything anyone uses.

    I use Bandizip in additon to 7-Zip as it works on some files that 7-Zip won't.

  8. In addition to 7-Zip, another free one is PeaZip:

    Thanks to everyone that helped me.
    But now I have a problem: When I have a zip file and click it with the right mouse to open the menu and choose
    " Open with " it doesn't appear the name 7z to select the program. What must I do?

  10. You associate 7-Zip to all supported filetypes. Open 7-Zip with Admin rights and set up in options.
    But in right click menu there should be already a new entry. You don‘t need open with. Did you install the x64 exe?

    After installing 7Zip, you should be able to see the "7-Zip" context menu when you right-click a .zip file in Windows Explorer.
