I am after some software that will zip up a folder, make it a self extracting Zip and has the ability to run a file once the extraction has been done.
Does anyone know of one please?

using 7zip :
Not sure on how to make it auto extract though - when do you want it to extract ?
- Open 7Zip File manager (7zipfm.exe)
- Find the Files, which can be anything, and then click the big green "Add" button.
- Make the archive format a .7z (under archive format of course) and look for the create sfx archive which should work after making the archive format .7z
- Set any other settings you might need
- Click OK and thats your self extracting exe / archive done

Will them 2 run the file after the end user has extracted the files?

- Rep Power
WinRAR will do this. Create your zip/rar file, open it in WinRAR, click SFX, choose "Advanced options" and there's an option to run a file after extraction is done.
WinRAR archiver, a powerful tool to process RAR and ZIP files

Yes, WinZip can as well.
WinZip® Self-Extractor 4.0
Would say WinRar better, but both are not free. So you're suck either way. Failing that, an MSI.
