      He is not looking at or reading about permissions in Win 7
      This should apply to all Win 7 versions I believe.
      On the zip file as received via email.
      1) Save the file to a working area ...some scratch directory.
      2) Bring up the file explorer and right click on the zip file and select properties
      3) The properties window should have 4 tabs  General, Security, Details, Previous Versions
      4) On the General tab if the file has been blocked at the bottom is a Security notice:
          “This file came from another computer and might be blocked to protect this computer”
      Click on the Unblock button. Then Apply and OK This will remove the block and permit unzipping.

      Rick. I have sent ur workaround to my local friend la8en. No joy. Same issue. Ur workaround did not work. He has now: W7 ultimate wich gives no property changing options according to him.
      New ideas? He has just gone from XP and Vista to WIN7 Ultimate. 73 de LA7UM Finn.

      files that are potentially dangerous (.exe, .zip, etc) that are received by email are set by properties to be save. You simply go in and change the properties that allow them to be opened (eg. for zip files).
