I suggest opening Winzip and dropping the file onto it. If it still opens as something else, it's probably something else. :) Are you sure this isn't a file association issue? Can you double click ZIP files and have them open properly?

Thanks guys , I downloaded a trial version of winzip and it opened fine now, Maybe the unzip software that came with my computer is corrupted or something.

If you were using Xp built in unzip method, forget it, it often causes that problem.

Use a stand alone program like winzip
