    Zipped files

    So ive got this problem with my zipped files.
    Whenever I open the zip, instead of appearing the files I get a notebook full of words and stuff that dont make sense, ive tried go to the "open with.." thing but i cant find the zip.
    Help please?

    Hm. That's weird. Sometimes happens to me with .pivs.

    Do you have WinZip or Winrar handling your .zip files? That probably doesn't matter, but hey, it's worth a try.

    Sounds like zip files aren't associated with windows explorer. I dunno how to fix this, so the easiest option is to just get 7-zip.

    Well I can still work with some stuff, but when I DL something it goes directly to the notebook, so I cant dl anything.

    Attemoted? What is that? Anyway probably not. Well if I could find a paste where the Zip program is hanging arround I could just go to "open with" and..Bam problem solved.
    I think.

    You mean when you download something in a pack and it has a lot of things in it it says as a zip ile? That's easy. Just right click on the zip file and select Extract All. That's all you need to do.

    You need to change the defaults for the zip file type. It's currently being opened by default with Notepad. Just go to the control panel and change it so that by default Windows Explorer opens all .zips.

    The alternative would be install WinRar, 7zip, or a similar program.
