JZip is built on the 7-Zip technology, which is a file compression engine located at the website http://www.7-zip.org/. This program has a browser hijacker, which will change your default search engine to search.jzip.com
If you have already installed this program, click here to use AdwCleaner to remove the Potentially Unwanted Programs that were installed. AdwCleaner is a very small program and doesn't require any installation.
I recommend using 7-Zip, Winzip, WinRar other adware free file compression (zip) programs.
