You can download free WinZip 10.0 from:
http://www.vodahost.com/winzip.htm

But this is not its official site and may not work properly...

Why don't you just download it from the official site?

WinZip is NOT free Jul 5, 2007

It is a shareware (or as it is called now, try-and-buy) software. You can download it for free and use it for some time (45 days, if I recall correctly) before you buy it. The best place for downloading it would be the official site:
http://www.winzip.com/index.htm

Have you tried IZArc? Jul 5, 2007

It's a better tool IMHO and freeware (you can make a small donation if you want).

Yes, Natalie, I think you are right. Only the trial version (restricted to some period of time) is free. And of course it is better to download the product only from its official site.

As people have already said, WinZip is not free. I recommend installing the portable version of 7-zip to a portable hard drive, that way you've got it with you whereever you go.
