Unzipping in Vista...

    Has anyone noticed this. I find myself going back to my XP machine to
    extract Files. For some reason Vista just crawls when extracting when using
    WinZip (have not tried the internal yet, since I need to reboot to do so.).
    Am I missing some setting. Should I shut off the always annoying UAC (which
    I hate because it also blocks me from making changes to File Associations
    unless I reboot. MS should have made this switchable within programs,
    instead of rebooting all the time, or at least allowed exceptions to be set
    up. I think most users will end up turning it off, as I am leaning towards.)

    I like the way Vista looks and many of the features, but using it is like
    trying to run with your shoelaces tied together. The only option MS gives
    you is cut the shoelace.

    Personally I prefer Kubuntu.

    I can extract rar multiple rar archives, each over a gig in size compressed,
    from the same hard drive, to the same hard drive...all at the same
    time...without the system even loosing any amount of responsiveness. =)

    No, it is an operating system. =)

    Attached is unzip.vbs (it can also add a folder to an existing zip).

    Unzip <path to Zip> <Path to directory to extract to - must exist>

    Use the for command

    for %A in (*.Zip) do unzip "%A" "%~dp"

    Which will extract all zips into the folder the zip is in.
