I wasn't aware that .NET had introduced classes for ZIP (e.g. .zip) files (thanks for that FernandoSoto!). In addition to the above, I have been using DotNetZip for a little while now, and it works very well. You can install it from NuGet.

I am using .nET 4.0, I see the examples are for .net 4.5, also the .net 4.0 library
shows an example of unzipping .gz file. I need to unzip a .ZIP file

 foreach (FileInfo fi in di.GetFiles("*.gz"))
            {
                Decompress(fi);

            }
