Windows XP ships with basic support for handling ZIP files, but it is rather limited. To utilise an existing archive, add/remove files or create a self-extracting ZIP file (which can automatically extract files to a location on a hard drive and then execute a command), you'll need an archive manager. Lukcily there are quite a few free tools around that will enable you to create and manage your archived files.
7-ZIP has been around for a while and, as well as handling existing ZIP archives, it even supports its own 7z compression format. ZipGenius is another popular archive tool and is regularly updated. The developer is planning a big v7 launch in the near-future. TUGZip is worth trying, but hasn't been updated for a while.
