    How to Unblock a Blocked .ZIP file?
    It says R/Click and click Property and
    tick Unblock?
    Where is the Unblock mark on the
    Property sheet?
    Thanks for help.

    "Extract All"
    No it does not work it refers to the
    same para of blocking and unblocking
    as I mentioned earlier.
    The Norton Security is installed on the
    computer and there is no third party
    zip utility installed.
    Does it matter?

    Sorry. I have never seen a 'blocked' zip file. Do you know what program is
    blocking it?

    These are attachments in a message in Outlook Express? That is what that
    Help & Support is referring to.

    Tools | Options | Security Tab. Uncheck: "Block images..............".

    Please verify the Version of Windows, Edition of that version and Service
    pack level you are using:

    Start button --> RUN --> type in:
    (No "RUN", press the WindowsKey+R at the same time.)
    winver

    That will give you (picture at top) the full name of the operating system.
    That will give you (in the test) the Service Pack you have installed.

    The zip file in question is not an attachment
    to any message oe email.
    I started to download the Nero7 essenntial
    help file since these were not on the Nero
    disk came with cd writer.
    Somehow this zip file Nero_7.zip came
    along with the lot. Other zip files are ok.
    This may be a nasty file as the windows
    security has blocked it. Infact I have no
    knowledge of its contents. It cannot be
    copied from its download folder to another.
    This refers to SP2 version mine is SP3.
    I should try to delete it.

    Thank you very much for your help.

    What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your

    What third-party firewall (if any)?

    Has a(nother) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the
    computer?

    Did a Norton or McAfee free-trial come preinstalled on the computer when you
    bought it? (Doesn't matter if you never used or Activated it.)

    There is a small Utility called 'UnLocker' available for free on the
    net; it may help.

    Blocked, not Locked.

    And now that we know they cannot *save* an attachment in Outlook Express and
    it is really not a Windcows XP problem (din't think XP had that feature -
    thought it first appeared in Vista) - it's pretty simple to fix.

    The Google search...
    http://www.google.com/search?q=Unblock+an+attachment+type+in+"Outlook+Express"

    Would lead to:
    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/IE/community/columns/oeandsp2.mspx

    Which is similar to what the OP quoted later in this conversation when they
    finally pointed out it was Outlook Express blocking the file (actually
    attachment to an email)...

    Tells them how to unblock access to said attacment (or at least work-around
    it.)

    Easy Peasy.

    Oh.. I'll be. They did say that.

    Really seems weird then - as I don't recall Windows XP natively blocking
    files.

    Thanks all of you who intheir way try
    to help me. I am very grateful for
    your answers and comments which
    are of very highly standard.
    I really appreciate your know-how
    knowledge of the subject.

    I have solved my problem by going through
    the Norton Internet Security 2010 suit
    and by disabling its antispam and antivirus
    features temporarily.

    Once again thanks all of you.

    So, Norton was to blame. It is the most incompatible AV program you can
    possibly use with Windows. If you want to get rid of a lot of headaches
    and a big resource hog, get rid of Norton and replace it with MSE.

    Download and run the Norton Removal Tool

    For a lot of reasons - this may be another - Nero is felt by many to be
    inferior to various freeware replacements. I use Ashampoo with good results.
