function Expand-ZIPFile($file, $destination) {
    $shell = new-object -com shell.application
    $zip = $shell.NameSpace($file)
    foreach($item in $zip.items()) {
        $shell.Namespace($destination).copyhere($item)
    }
}

Open in new window

Use as Expand-ZIPFile –File “C:\archive.zip” –Destination “C:\temp”

Code taken from here: http://www.howtogeek.com/tips/how-to-extract-zip-files-using-powershell/

If you need a more robust function, with error checking, see here: http://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/PowerShell-Function-to-727d6200
