    What OS Phillip?

    Either way, as far as I recall, XP can open some compressed files, but you have to open them like they are a folder and pull out the files within them - never used the extract function if XP has it built in.

    For w2k, I thought it didn't natively recognize zips and other compressed files, and needed third party support?

    Try unregistering, then re-registering the XP (assuming you're running XP) ZIP component. Type the following line in the Run box...

    regsvr32 /u zipfldr.dll

    Reboot your system, then type (also in the Run box)...

    regsvr32 zipfldr.dll
