We have microsoft ISA server 2006 in our network which is a proxy server for students and XP as client.

Iam trying to access a web site where students will be doing their test.The below is the link
to access the website.Before the test begins there is a setup check on the webpage on right hand top corner. when clicked it does a series of system and server communication checks
to make sure that there is no communication problem to carry out the test.

Under the asset download test, I have problem  opening Zip file.When i double click Zip file the i get the error  as shown below. Do i need to create a new rule in the ISA proxy server or edit the existing rule?. Iam not familar with the ISA server.
