Vista should have ZIP capability built in.

WinRAR works very well for multiple formats:

StuffIt is another good multi-format utility:
More Info:

WinZip is a somewhat limited on trick pony, over priced too:
More Info:

All of these "lossless" compression algorithms work by reducing redundancies in a file and increasing the entropy, i.e. making the
file more random thus more compact, since any symbol that is
predictable is partially or fully redundant.

Predictable symbols contain less information, and are therefore
alloted fewer bits. More unexpected symbols contain more information, therefore are alloted more bits.

For example, in the English language the letters "t" and "e' are very frequent, thus do little to identify a word. They are given only
1 or 2 bits in the compressed file.

The letter "z" is relatively rare, and knowing that a word contains
the letter "z" narrows the choices down considerably.
This letter is given many bits.

On average, the number of bits in any given file, is drastically
reduced (by statistics) when compared to the uncompressed =
8 bits per character version.

Also the compression utilities search for frequently repeated
strings, such as the word "the" and replace these with fewer
bits. Good compression utilities build a custom symbol table
for each document, and are therefore language and application

On Microsoft Windows XP Professional I'm Trying To Make A Compressed Zipped Folder I Right Clicked A File Clicked Send To And Clicked Compressed Zipped Folder And It Just Made A Win RAR Zip File

Win RAR *is* a compressed Zip file. The folder itself can't be compressed only the contents. So, just create a folder using any name you want to use such as *my rar zip* and drag the compressed winrar file into it.
