Is photorec truly free? I keep getting a Winzip popup

I would like to try to use photorec but each time I try to download and run the software I get a popup from Winzip indicating I must purchase their software for $29. Would someone please explain?

WInzip isn't free, PhotoRec is.
Instead of Winzip, use 7-zip, it's free.
