Thanks Ken
       1. My instincts are not to trust the MS built in. I have no
       special requirements. Superficially it seems OK and I am using
       it. (using AVast as my anti-virus)
       2. Sometimes get .zma files ( typically 1-2 Meg. In the past
       they opened with ZoneAlarm Client) In Vista I change them to .rar and with WnZip they expand OK.
       (Do you know of any software that Creates/expands these?)

Best regards,
 Arthur                            mailto:ArthurM at seipas.com
