What is FYZip?

Distributed through Full Spectrum Interactive/DownloadAdmin and bundles various unwanted software. It is basically just a UI wrapper around the free 7zip software library.

About  (from TightRope Interactive)

FY-Zip is a file archiver, just like winzip or winRAR but it's 100% free to use! FY-Zip can open and create compressed files, fast. Compressed files take up less space on your computer and are the perfect way to save room on your hard drive. They're also great for reducing the size of large email files.


When installed, it will add a context menu handler to the Windows shell in order to provide quick access to the program. The primary executable is named FYZip.exe. The setup package generally installs about 5 files and is usually about 1.66 MB (1,740,282 bytes).
FYZip has been seen bundling various 3rd party software during the installation process. Make sure to check for and remove unused programs.
