    it is useful enough for day-to-day tasks. if you use zip files sparingly it is gud enough.
    Does it takes out resources?
    yes it does but it is so negligible you might not notice.
    If yes, how shall I disable it? Which program is good to replace it? Thanks
    in "run" box, type and then press enter.
    regsvr32 /u %windir%\system32\zipfldr.dll

    use some other zip utility like 7zip.

    I'll second that, 7-zip is an excellent free open-source application :thumb:

    *the .7z compression is also quite good. even better than .rar or .ace
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    I handle loads of zipped archives daily and Winrar works best for me. :)

    Winrar for me, too. Never used any other, never needed to. End of story.:thumb:
