Whenever I try to move my .ZIP files into another folder (by dragging and dropping) I get a "Your current security settings do not allow this action" error. Even when I try to right click on them (to cut and paste or unzip) I still get a "This page has an unspecified security flaw. Would you like to continue" error. :thumbsup: I work with .ZIPs a lot, so this is really driving me nuts!

Have you checked the properties on those files. Read only...

Are you logged in as administrator?

Does sound to me like there might be a windows corruption somewhere, so it won't hurt running a checkdisk.
Right-click drive -> properties -> tools
Just set it to automatically fix errors and skip the bad sector part.
Reboot if you have to.

Hope it works out. :thumbsup:

I also suggest running chkdsk.

How To Run CHKDSK In XP - http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...b;en-us;Q315265 I suggest following the instructions for My Computer.

With Internet Explorer so entangled with the OS you could see if this gives any relief-
