The ZIX file format is an archive format.
Although it boasts of effective compression, this format does not actually compress anything. ZIX files usually come with a program called "WinZix", an adware program: it downloads a copy of Adware.Lop to your system, which adds a toolbar and search button to Internet Explorer.
Another version appeared, "version 2", which used ZLIB compression.
