I use the CabFile component from TMS Software: www.tmssoftware.com - it's excellent.

I'm using the VCLZip, which I find very good.
It's not free, but I find it's value for money. You are getting source & update's so that it's always supported with tha latest version of Delphi.

Delphi also comes with the (free) zlib library. It makes it easy to (de)compress data in streams.
