I downloaded the win zip software sometime ago and now every time I try to use it, I get the message it is not a free software so i can't use it

Which version of Windows are you using? Either way uninstall it and install WinRar. It's a trail version too, but if you right-click your files and choose Extract.... It won't bother mentioning anything about being expired ;)

If you've got Windows 7 you don't need WinZip for Zip files, it can extract them without the software too!

While opening ms powerpoint it ask for a product key .I type in the correct product key but it says the product key is incorrect. what should i do?

you probably had just a trial and the key is you will need a correct one ..or you will need to download and reinstall it again ..
Just download it ..and use utorrent for doing it ...extract with winrar or winzip ...and install by running the execution ...the serials will be in the text file ...
Here is the torrent program you need for to download it attention and click on the download torrent and not on the big download which is just an add on from the site ..
If you do not have a winrar program you find one here will need it for extracting the zipped files...

When i try to install a critical update it was denied access by 7 zip. even after uninstalling 7 zip and installing winzip i still get the same response when trying to install updates 7 zip access denied....

Install Winrar, Here is the link

if you double click the file,the files will be extracted in the temp folder,so after installing winrar,right click on the file and select extract here. and try to install the update now,

Sometime when you extract files and it contains Malware or Trojan,Anti-Virus which support real time scan just block the files and the access denied message is displayed.

Scan the extracted files before installing so that you know it's Virus free.

Sometimes,even if you have administrator right,sometimes due to malware infection, you are denied access to some system hidden giles like folder under Local settings.
