renaming 2 files within a zip after downloading

Last Modified: 2015-03-05
We have a customer with a proprietary file share server (developed using .Net) &
whenever users download the zip, it gets blocked by IPS due to the presence of
2 files in the zip (metadata.xml & jjjjjj.config).

However, if these 2 files were renamed to some other names, the download
goes through.

Is there any way that on the client end that by clicking an icon, it will download
the zip, unzip it & then rename the 2 files back to their original names?

Do provide some sample Windows batch & PowerShell script that we can put
in script which I'll just create a Shortcut icon on the desktop
