    Been using WinRAR since forever, never really had any problems with it. I've tried 7-Zip before, it may be a good choice if you're looking for a good and free extractor.

    The following file formats are working with winrar:
    Rar, zip, cab, arj, lzh, ace, 7-zip, tar, gzip, uue, bz2, jar, iso, z.

    Don't know if other formats work, but these are officially supported.

    It expires after 40 days or something but it's just to click close on the reminder that pops up and use it freely for how long you like ^^
