Many Windows users try to install 4zip, because they are convinced that it is the best free compression software that allows them to unzip Zip archives and create Zip-compatible files. Unfortunately, immediately after clicking the Download button, users are presented with a wizard that clearly indicates the installation of WinZipper, the program whose removal you are now interested in. The name of this program suggests that it works just like 4zip is supposed to, which is why computer users install it. Of course, this is not how you should handle this program. Instead, you should research it as an entirely different, unfamiliar program. This is particularly important because the publisher of WinZipper is Taiwan Shui Mu Chih Ching Technology Limited, and this is the publisher of qone8.com and isearch.omiga-plus.com browser hijackers.
