  2. long time scan

    Sometimes this happens if you have many compressed files (zip, rar etc.) on your computer. This is because the antivirus needs to unpack all these files and then scan the contents. If this is the case, try setting the antivirus to ignore archives.

    How to send multiple emails from "my stuff"

    I'm not sure why either. However the workaround that I use. Is to use zip up the files into one archive. Which saves on the size of the email, so keeping the mobile data cost down. Pocket RAR or HTC ZIP, will do the job nicely. If your device doesn't
    have a archive program pre-loaded.

    7-zip definitely. It is free, copes with all formats you want, is faster and compresses better.

    I've used WinRAR and WinZip in the past but have no need for them any more.

    The reason I got into WinZip years ago was the ability to compress a number of files into one then create an .exe/Self Extracting file for sharing with folks or putting on different machines that didn't have such a program. PKZip for DOS didn't quite do the job for me. I do have 7-Zip on a few machines and ZipPEG on my MacBook Pro.

    ...and .iso files, Nero's proprietary .nrg files, Backup & Restore's .vhd system image files - what can't 7-Zip open?
     
  11. Just try them out, and see which one you like. I find all of them perform the same thing.

  13. WinRar. It handles every form of compression and archiving known. Works flawlessly and is well integrated into Windows.
