    if you copy a file from a zip folder to a protected location such as
    c:\program files\, the copy is done with success but the files are NOT copied.

    Windows Vista SP1

    Reproduction steps:
    1. double click on a zip file
    2. select a few files, right click and select "copy"
    3. go on c:\program files
    4. create a new folder named test, confirm the UAC prompt
    5. go on c:\program files\test, right click and select "paste" in order to
    copy the files
    ..... and the copy is done with success, but the files are NOT copied!!!
