Oh yes, it does. It's a matter of settings, though. :-*

Oh, in the Pro version: In the Enhanced user interface, go to the Tasks folder, select Resident Protection, right click on it, select Edit, check the Advanced Configuration box, and go to the Archives 'folder' to make the changes. Simple, huh? ;D

Note that this can cause a major slowdown if you have lots of zip files. :-\
