[Contest] WinRAR 4.20

Imagine that you have just bought a new computer. What program will you install first of all? I think that the answer is very simple, of course, Winrar! This program is the most popular program after operating system and browsers among the computer users. You can find it everywhere on the Internet and download. But why is it so popular? There are many reasons. Firstly, the most of the information on the Internet is distributed through archive files. Secondly, you can easily decrease the size of your file by the help of Winrar. Thirdly, Winrar has got a lot of great features which other similar programs does not have at all. Winrar is a powerful utility for creating and managing archive files. It contains a wide range of additional useful features as well. You can compress better than any other similar programs can do.

The first version of Winrar was released in 1995 and the latest one 4.20 one week ago, on June 14, 2012. This new version has a lot of improvements and fixes (you can find everything about the changes here http://rarlab.com/rarnew.htm). We can say without exaggeration that Winrar is the best compression-decompression program for every day use.

The installation file of Winrar is very small, only about 2MB. The installation process is very fast and easy. It supports more than forty languages-English, French, etc. and has separate installers for 32 and 64bit OS.

The main interface of Winrar is very attractive and comfortable (but if you want to customize its appearance you can additionally download more themes official Winrar site- http://rarlab.com/themes.htm).

The main interface consists of six menu buttons: 1. File, 2. Commands, 3. Tools, 4. Favorites, 5. Options and 6. Help. Besides that below those buttons you can find the special Control buttons for easy manipulating with archives: Add, Extract to, etc.

File menu button allows you to open and save files, specify the default password, copy and paste files, select the group, exit the program and quickly go to the last used archives. Commands menu button allows you to perform various operations with files, for example, view, delete, rename, print file, etc. Tools menu button has a special tool called Wizard. By the help of it you can extract archive, add files to an existing archive. In addition, you can also check the archives for viruses, restore, convert, find and show information of files. Favorite menu button allows you to add a specific file to favorites and organize the list of files. Option menu button contains the basic settings of the program. Help menu contains instruction about using the program, Winrar web page and brief information about the program.

Winrar has got a lot of great features:

1) It supports many compression formats- RAR, ZIP, CAB(Cabinet File-the format of Microsoft), ARJ(Data compression format developed by Robert Jung), LZH(Data compression format developed by Haruyasu Yoshizaki. At first it was used for other platforms, but later also for Windows operating system), ACE, 7-ZIP, TAR(Tape Archive), GZIP(Data compression format mainly used for UNIX/LINUX operating system), UUE(UUENCODE), BZ2(Data compression format mainly used for UNIX/LINUX operating system), JAR(Java Archive File, the special format for Java applications), ISO and Z(Data compression format mainly used for UNIX/LINUX operating system).

2) Winrar uses 6 different compression methods- Store, Fastest, Fast, Normal, Good and Best.

3) Winrar can split into several parts, you can only choose the size in B, KB or GBs.

4) Winrar can create so called SFX(self -extracting files). This feature is very useful because you can easily open a file on that computer where Winrar is not installed.

5) Winrar can encrypt files with the special algorithm AES. It uses 128-bit encryption method which is very secure.

6) Winrar supports Unicode documents as well as NTFS file system.

7) Winrar can work with very big files. The maximum size is not limited. You can compress-decompress files which exceed billion gigabytes.

8) Winrar can be easily integrated into Windows Explorer for comfortable working with archived files.

9) Winrar supports Command line and multi-core processors.

The constant development of Winrar, its unstoppable improvement has made it the must-have program for every day use. Its simplicity and great features are really very needful and useful for everybody. It is difficult to imagine the modern computers without it.
