Hi, I'm having a problem with all the archived files on my laptop,(anything in a .zip, .rar, .7zip file etc). Problem has just started today so not sure if I've got a virus of some sort.

Basically any existing or newly downloaded file that I have on my laptop does not appear to be extracting. If I use an extract all method, then one of the folders will extract (if there are folders in the file) but when I look in the folder it's empty. If it is just a file ie;.js,.css or .jpg or something then it wont transfer. I can pick up the file and drag and drop it in to the desired destination but once I let go nothing happens. The destination folder is still empty.

Does anybody have any idea why this would be happening?

I'm on a Qosmio X500-134 laptop running W7 Home Premium SP1


Thanks in advance
