This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet.

Impossible to accurately answer without more information. Why are you asking? Where did you find the file? If you right-click and go to properties, does the executable have a company name and other metadata embedded in it? – Stephen Jennings Mar 8 '11 at 15:10
You're unlikely to ever find out this way: "Unzipper.EXE" is an incredibly generic filename and it may have been renamed from its original name. Try looking at strings inside the executable to locate a Vendor or Version I. And please don't cross-post. – Lightness Races in Orbit Mar 8 '11 at 15:22
don't crosspost your questions! – Ivo Flipse Mar 8 '11 at 15:36
If it is legit and someone knows the file could be answered after you know the name of the program and the MD5 hash from the Unzipper.EXE – Darokthar Mar 8 '11 at 15:49

Just based on the file name, the Internet seems not to think so. Of course, an executable can be named anything, perhaps it's something else called Unzipper.exe just to sound innocuous.

I found a link on some forums for IMAGE Information Systems Ltd. one of the site admins posted a link to download a file called unzipper.exe in response to a question about K-pacs (presumably the forum owners software). Not sure if this is the same one but if you start the download you can clearly see that the file name is unzipper.exe. Here is a link to the forums, hope it helps.

EDIT: I downloaded it into a VM and it does seem to be legitimate software from K-pacs to merge and unzip DICOM-MAIL files.
