Winzip 10, it's REAL slow

So, I just did my civic duty and paid for my copy on winzip and oh my god, it ungodly slow. I'm just unzipping and it's like a file per second, unbelievable. So, I whip out my trusty command line unzip command and kaboom, unzipped in no time. What the hell have they done to absolutely cripple the winzip gui?

I'd like to know the same thing! It's SO much slower than v8/9. Unzipping large archives that used to take a few minutes (e.g., the JDK API reference) now takes a few hours! It's very tedious, and highly annoying to have paid for something this painfully slow.

Fix it, please, WinZip!
