What is Update for Zip Opener?

Update for Zip Opener is the update mechanism for the Install Core software which is an installer which bundles legitimate applications with offers for additional third party applications that may be unwanted by the user. Such third party applications are typically installed onto users’ computers by default, but may include an option to ‘opt-out’ during or after the installation process.

The software is typically distributed through somewhat deceptive advertising practices through bestcodecpackapp.com and distributed by ClickRunSoftware.
