I've received a zip file (that the recipient tells me has a password on it), I have a windows 7 machine (no idea what machine he created the zip on) and I've right clicked the zip file, and selected "extract all", it then prompts for a desitnation folder so I select a folder (still havent been prompted for a password here), and then I just get error messages....

"An unexpected error is keeping you from copying the file..... "

Error code 0x80004005: Unspecified Error.

Any idea would the issue could be? Could it be to what they used to zip the file in?

Looks like a compressed and encrypted zip ....i think this will only work if you install winzip or winrar....only after installing these software u will get a pompt to enter password.


Install winzip evaluation edition or winrar free edition....then try to unzip.
