    It means your file associations for Zip files are assigned to Adobe Acrobat Reader, instead of WinZip, for example.

    Do you have WinZip installed? Go to the options of the program and associate WinZip with Zip files

    Or do this:

    Download the file, and choose save to disk.

    . Highlight the file file by clicking on it once
    · Hold down the shift key and then right-click your mouse
    · Select "Open With" from the menu
    . Choose WinZip
    . Check 'always use this program...'


    Good luck,
