Yes, anyway the UniExtract package supports many more formats (you can find an unofficial updated release of it HERE). The advantage is that now also ArcThemALL! supports some of the most common formats, in particular:
7Z, ARJ, BZIP2, CAB, CHM, CPIO, DEB, DMG, GZIP, HFS, ISO, LZH, LZMA, MSI, NSIS, RAR, RPM, TAR, UDF, UPX, WIM, XAR, Z and ZIP.

Hi I Like ArcThemALL! vary Much I Have another
Request Please add an Option to Select the
Compeession Level or if that is not possible
then set the default compression to Maxcimum.

Now as u have added support to receive files
through SendTo, now i will write an Installer
for ArcThemALL! which will Install ArcThemALL!
and give option to create shortcut in Sendto menu
and context menu. would u like to host the installer
on your site if yes then i will send u the installer
with source code.

About the compression ratio: I decided to do not add this feature when I started to create it, because I think it is not needed. The compression is already at the maximum by default, because I think users don't need minor compression at all.

You are free to create an installer and I could consider to add it in the sourceforge project. :wink:

Gave this program a try and found some minor annoyances with it.

- Doesn't remember the way I want files to be (de)compressed. For example, I want archives to be unpacked to a new folder, but this cannot be made the default action.
- It would be nice if the program could automatically select some options. For example, drag and drop a zip file to the program window will make it select "archives" and "Decompress" by itself.
- I find it almost impossible to compress files.

I could implement some more accurate settings to remember user preferences, may be in one of the next releases.
Can you instead explain me why you find it impossible to compress files? Note that it isn't a normal compressor, its purpose is the multi-compression of single files or single folders and so a little different to a normal compression procedure. Anyway your opinions could help me to improve it in future releases.
