7 zip, not used winrar for the past few years.
For some reason I don't see the buy text on mine. Anyway, from where do you downloaded the portable version? I see quite a few portable versions on different sites but not sure which one should I use I'm new to Bandizip.Bandizip ads blocked via any Firewall looks like below:Background Windows uses a simple technique to keep track of which binary files were downloaded from the Internet (or a network share). Each downloaded file is is tagged with a hidden NTFS Alternate…textslashplain.com

You don't need an exploit to abuse a local 7zip installationArchive file management softwares is also vulnerable:
Security vulnerabilities related to 7-zip : List of vulnerabilities related to any product of this vendor. Cvss scores, vulnerability details and links to full CVE details and referenceswww.cvedetails.com
I recommend MT users who rely on an Anti-Exploit like Malwarebytes to check if in their OS and software version if 7zip is really under Anti-Exploit protection:
In the 2 images under Bandizip with injected mbae.dll and 7zip which has no mbae.dll:

Moreover, it is not possible to add 7zip to the Shields list because the software is already included in the list:

In my pc, therefore, even if I wanted, I could not use 7-Zip.
P.S. Even testing with the Exploit Test Tool (HP) renamed as 7zip shows that there is no protection against Exploits.
Please check in your OS and Malwarebytes software version.

It's not related to WD's static scan. The static scan happens anyway. It's related to SmartScreen and can be helpful for many users regardless of the AV specially for exe files as it blocks unknown files by default.AFAIK non WD users don't need MOTW since 3rd party antiviruses are smart enough to scan all files instead of the WD approach that needs MOTW to perform an useful static scan.
Sorry for causing misunderstanding:
I use PeaZip portable to create archives, though because it still doesn't use ASLR or CFG, I don't use it to open unknown files. I like its interface and file tools, such as the secure shredder, but 7-Zip, which finally added ASLR, is marginally more secure for opening unknown 7z files. I open .zip files with the built-in MS tool to preserve MOTW. I no longer use Bandizip because of my inherent opposition to crippleware.Still using 7-zip. But i am thinking to use peazip. Is anybody here using peazip? How is its encryption and compression compared to 7-Zip?
