    Default WINZIP for windows 98

    Hi!
    We have an old Dell running windows 98, but we need Winzip thats compatible.....
    Tryed downloading a version but it says"we already have a copy or bits of one, so it wont let us download a new version.....As far as we know the old one of Winzip was deleted. (something too about shell extension). Any recommendations? Or which wINZIP?

    Thanks for your help
    Winrar opened up the file, but the program within that Im suppose to download had a messsage that said"In unknown formatt or damaged".
    Any ideas about that?
    I think I used Winrar 3 7 1 or something like that, for windows 98.

    um.. that means that the file is probably broken. How large is the file?

    I'm not really sure how big it is, but do you mean thats a fault within the program I'm trying to download? Because thats what I was thinking it meant. I even tried extracting the file through 7zip, but it said there was an "error reading the setup initialization file."
