See here for DOS packers (assuming I understood your request correctly). Else, go visit PE Compact (student version, I assume).

There are plenty on exetools (use google). The most widely respected are arguably fsg and mew.

try UPack - file will be smaller, but more slowly

UPX 2.90 unstable!!! (even .COM under Win32 is broken now) has support for LZMA (i.e., from 7-ZIP), so you can test that (not distribute, it's buggy!) and see if you like it. It does compress DJGPP programs much better now. Smile

P.S. Sorry for such a strong warning, but I wouldn't want you to think it's safe to use for everyday tasks. Use UPX 2.02 (which is the latest stable) for distributions.

Earlier UPX isn't so unstable. Can't wait for the latest to become stable though.
