Hey there,



I have a Dell Dimension 4600 that I recently re-installed. Everything is working flawlessly but I went to unzip a file and notced that it is taking a very long time(more than normal) to extract and it does not extract many of the files in the zip.

I have another desktop that I used to extract the file to see if anything was wrong with the file itself, and it worked perfectly.....



Any ideas?

I would delete the current one you have then down load a copy WZ10, can't go wrong and it is free! You could also opt for 11.2 for a few $$$

Windows XP has inherent zip support that allows you to view, create, and extract zip files without having a third party tool. There are times that you will want to use a third-party zip compression program, and at those times, the built-in zip support may conflict. If this is the case, you can follow the steps in "How to Disable and Enable Windows XP's built-in zip support".

AWESOME! I finally got it to work. I don't know if the fact that I used a external drive to transfer the zip, but I tried copying the file over again and it worked. Thanks both of you for the great help! :thumbsup:
