It may be the compressed file is corrupted.  Can you try something like WinZIP or 7Zip and see if that helps?

A few questions:

Where did you get the zip file from? Can you re-download it or open it on the computer that created it?
Can you open it on another computer?
Was it created on a mac or in linux?
Was it copied from an encrypted file system?
Can you empty your c:\temp folder and try again?
