Help! opening "Zipped" files, (WinZip expired!)

Installed "WinZip" trial software by accident when setting up this PC, and now it's expired, I'm too tight to now pay for it!

Right clicking on the folder only gives me the option to open with "WinZip", or browse for suitable software which I can't find!

I seem to remember that windows XP had it's own file compression tool, does it exist in Vista ultimate, or must I buy "WinZip"?

Download winrar from here:

Although it is the trial version you will be able to use it indefinately to open most zipped files including winzip files.

I've just been looking on the "ITsVISTA" site, and found the simple answer!!!
Just uninstall "WinZip" and windows inbuilt compression/extraction tool re-appears like magic!
(Why didn't I think of that!)
Doh!!
