    i keep hitting cancel but it wont unzip, unless im doing something wrong

    Can't you bypass the expiry issue by 'right clicking' on the file you want to unzip, then use the 'extract to here' option instead of opening the main program?

    Sorry, not in front of a PC right now so can't double check...

    i use tugzip, just as good and completely free!! ]http//fi…ip/

    it extracts to a new folder but they are still zipped:?

    When the purchase box comes up, click "close" and then click on "extract to" and tell it where to save. Should work.

    Sure they're not double zipped? I've come across zips in zips many times :thumbsup:

    Could use Zip Central - that's free.

    right guys, as you know im not really a techie, so will explain the best i can

    I usually click on extract to desktop, then put on sd card
    now when i extract to desktop, it puts it on desktop but the files are still unzipped
    i have download tugzip and that is doing exactly the same

    what am i doing wrong, how should it look, sorry its been a while since i have used it

    are you trying to unzip a protected file? maybe its password protected or someting?

    i would also uninstall winrar and restart, this should allow tugzip to associate itself with all the extentions and maybe work? worth a shot.

    normally i just right click and select 'extract here' then delete the zip file, and move the contents to where i want them.

    I have uninstalled winrar :?

    no not trying to unzip anything protected, when it unzips it just puts a new folder and when you open it the files still unzipped, they are like three little books with a belt round them (that means unzipped yeah)

    if they are showing as book s then they are still zipped. try unzipping them inside that unzipped folder

    can i ask what the file is? can i try unzipping it?

    Sometimes, Rar files you download have further zipped/ rar files within them, so need unzipping multiple times. Some programmes contain rar / zip files that will be unzipped by the programme itslef once setup is activated.

    Have you tried unzipping an old file that you have successfully unzipped before. If it works again, you know the problem issue only lies with the new file.
