i dont know why but all my .ZIP files will not open/work when i save them from the internet
its just that when i SAVE the .zip files they will not open
but when i just OPEN the .zip files they work just perfectly
and i have tried WINRAR and all those other ones but they seem to do the exact same or just get run time errors..

I always extract programs/files before attempting to use them. Theoretically, XP will do this on the fly, but it's not always the case. Just highlight the file, click on extract all files, use the same folder, uncheck "show files" and voila! Ready to use.
