    I have googled my brains out and I can't find the answer. I have zipped files
    that contain javascript files. The extension is .js.

    Windows Vista will extract all the files but the .js because it says windows
    found that this file is potentially harmful.

    The zipped file is on my desktop, not still in email, not in messenger.

    Defender is disabled. Windows firewall is disabled. I'm running Norton 360.
    I can't get my job done without this file and I don't know what to do.

    Try right-clicking of the .zip file, and choose Properties. On the General
    tab, click on the Unblock button, and then Apply and OK. Then extract the
    files.

    Before I got your message I found something about taking ownership of the
    file. So I clicked on the properties of it and changed ownership to my
    account (even though my account is the admin account) and it allowed me to
    extract it.

    Thanks for the help. I'll try that also in the future.

    And what should the rest of the world do????
    How about coming with solution to this????
    I want to open any exe file that I download.
    I'm a programmer and I want complete control
    over my computer. Administration right should
    make it easy for me to open anything, right??
    how about option like " open anyway" ??
    Is it to much to ask for???

    Right click on the zip file that you are trying to open and go to th
    Details tab. Highlight the name of the zip file. Underlined in blue
    it will say remove properties and personal information. You should b
    able to unzip your file successfull
