How do I ?



How can I unzip to files sent to me that when I try say,
"Windows cannot open these files without knowing what prog. created it"
They are files to update a receiver.

It would help if you told us what type of file they are ( the extension .??? )
If they are .zip file then you need a program like ZipCentral to unravel them.

There is an excellent free alternative to zip which handles a whole range of compression types ( http://www.izarc.org/ ).

If they are ZIP files then windows XP handles these 'out of the box' - compressed folders or something.
