(Solved) - zip file opener(24 posts)
While I agree with the above recommendation, Zip file opening is built into Windows. There is really no need for additional software, unless you have very specific reasons. Why gum up your computer further with unneeded software?
I used to have what came with windows, but it disappeared and I don't know how to get it back. then I have had others which I liked and they disappeared. I don't know what's going on. For a while I had one called unzip for windows, but suddenly, it's gone, too. I liked the one that had an icon that looked like a file with a zipper on it, but I can't find it online anymore.
I will try all your recommendations and see what happens. thank you all
I just tried installing these things above and I could not because this error message popped up:
Error writing temporary file. Make sure your temp folder is valid.
Now what do I do?
Sounds like you infected badly with something throwing popups like that.
Click Start button, type cmd in the search box and cmd.exe will appear (hopefully)
Right click on it and choose Run as Administrator
type sfc /scannow and press Enter
Jim, I have already used up both of those trials, but I will uninstall them and try them again and see what happens. I do intend to buy them as soon as I can because they worked really well. I also already have Norton that I get free from Comcast and I have SpeedMaxPC and I use CCleaner. It sure takes a lot of stuff to keep these computers working.
Because all you guys help me so much, I want to do something good for you, too, so I am sending you these links. There is very, very important information in them. From them, you will be able to find more good stuff; and you can also get a lot more information about the subject on YouTube. If any of you live in California, this information is especially important because of Proposition 37. You will understand when you see the videos. Please watch the videos as soon as you can because they are really important. Thanks for all your help. :)

Please pass these links on to others.
I'll tell you why. Certain people do not want us to know about these things. It's been going on for many years and I just found out about it myself. I thought MSG and aspartame were bad, but GMO's make that stuff look like nothing. the sad part is that most foods have both, or all of those problems. You know about the depopulation plan don't you? Well, bad food is part of it. they are trying to get rid of us inferior beings! Tomorrow is the day they vote on Prop 37 in California. I hope to God it passes. then they will have to label the GMO foods. It will be a sad day if it does not pass, but I know that the people fighting for it will not stop regardless of what happens tomorrow. It will just be a little set back. that's all.
I just want you guys (and ladies) to know that my problems with my computer are solved. I got the zip opener problem solved. I was able to download something called jzip; however, I really didn't like it - too complicated and I hated the icon. It was ugly. I wanted my cute little file folder with a zipper on it icon that had just disappeared one day. So then my Kindle for PC disappeared and Amazon tried but could not help me. We kept getting that darn error that I was getting with the zip opener problem.
So I ran a full scan with Norton, then I ran a full scan with SuperAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes, and all of a sudden I got my Kindle back. Then just a few minutes ago, I decided to just get rid of the jzip, because I already had 7zip, and guess what! Suddenly that ugly jzip icon turned into my favorite little file folder with a zipper on it icon! I'm a happy camper now! thanks to you all!
Keep up on that GMO stuff, look up depopulation, study up on MSG and aspartame and other food additives. And another thing, don't let anybody give you any vaccines, including flu shots. Regardless of what you are told, they are NOT good for you. That's just another way to make us all sick. I can give you a lot more information and links if you want them, too. Just let me know. :) bye
Thanks curry318.... glad your zip icon is back.
BTW, I just finished watching "Conspiracy Theory" hosted by Jesse Ventura. The show was about the 9/11 coverup theory. Amazing how crooked/evil the U.S Government is.
Sure, post some links on that stuff, but I would advise you to post them in the Off Topic forum.
Please folks this site, by it's rules, prohibit discussion of government and politics in general, even in the OT.
There are thousands of sites where those discussions are relevant, this is not one of them. Closing since solved.
