    Tabs/Windows Multiply

    Hello. I hope I am in the right place to ask a question. I do machine embroidery. I download all of the designs I sew out from the internet on to my latop. It is a COMPAQ w/ VISTA basic. Some of the designs come unzipped and some come zipped. A couple of weeks ago I was "infected." We think we have that problem solved. BUT....Now when I go to my downloads and LEFT CLICK on a ZIPPED design then LEFT click on OPEN...the "page" starts flashing and then starts making other pages/windowa/tabs(???) at a rate the screen looks like it is strobbing.The ONLY way to stop it is to turn the computer off. I NEED my designs ...PLEASE, HELP.....

    Click on Start orb > Default Programs > and click on Associate a file type.....
    Wait for the Window to fill with a list of File Types
    Scroll down to zip

    What is the default program listed for zip?

    I would download and run 7zip. http://www.7-zip.org/

    Installing it should associate zip files (along with a bunch of other file extensions associated with compressed files) with 7zip and allow you to open your zip files again.
