Actually, I'm thinking about reinstalling windows utilities before I do a 
complete reinstall of SP2.  It's just an idea someone gave me this morning; 
so I'm going to look into it.

  Hi Dan,
  I've been reading the various posts made on this subject over the weekend. 
I'm not familiar with 7Zip, but it occurred to me to suggest uninstalling it 
so that you would be back to just Windows XP's native support for zip-files. 
My experience has been that installation of other zip-file-handling software 
generally renders the native support inoperative or at least unreliable. 
I'm thinking you might want to try moving back to the native support 
provided with XP, see how that works, and then, if you like, reinstall your 
7Zip.  At the very least, I suspect testing out the build-in XP support 
might tell you if there are other health problems in your copy of XP.

  As well, if you haven't installed XP Service Pack 2, I'd highly recommend 
it.  SP2 has been around a long time, and it provides good strong 
enhancements and bug-fixes.  Installing it may also fix some problems that 
could have crept into your copy of XP over time.

  Hi all.

  I'm using XP Service Pack 2 Home edition.

  Just within the past week or so, I have not been able to unzip any file 
folders.  If I use the utility that comes with XP, I get the usual vague 
error message from Microsoft.  If I use 7Zip, I get a diagnostic message 
saying that I have CRC failures and the file is broken.

  I haven't installed anything new lately or made any changes to my system. 
I also, in hopes of solving the problem, ran deep maintenance today on my 
system with the same results.

  I would appreciate anything anyone could tell me about how to correct this 

  Thanks in advance.
