problem with decompressing files.
hello all, never posted in the Windows section, i'm kind of an invalid when it comes to anything windows, other than installing and day to day use.....
anyways, my problem is when i need to decompress files...i first noticed this problem when trying to patch games online....the patcher would download a compressed file, and then try to decompress it...at this point the patcher would get an error and close...so after awhile i found a way around it by getting all the files from another computer....but this doesnt really solve my problem! even when i try to download a zipped file, i try to unzip it and it says the file is corrupt! however, it unzips fine on other computers....wth? i don't understand why my computer is having this problem....a compression program is included with the installation of windows correct? seems like it's messed up or something...can anyone tell me how to fix this?
