I use Windows 7. I have been having issues recently with my system after Microsoft automatically installed what they called critical updates. Now I can no longer download software on to my computer. I keep getting a weird message - The system cannot find the file specified. I was using win zip. I am trying to trouble shoot to locate the issue. Is there any other software besides win zip I can try out? Thanks for your assistance.

Try another browser and see if that helps.

Windows has a built in "Zip" so don't worry about Win-Zip.

I'm sorry...I should have been more specific. I get that crazy message every time I attempt to open and install downloaded software using winzip.

Don't use it.
Right click and se if there is an option using Windows Zip.
I don't have WinZip so I can't try it for you.

WInzip appears to be the only option... are there any other alternatives besides winzip that I can try to download?

The system isn't allowing me to install/ run/ download anything. I keep getting a "The System Cannot Find The File Specified" message whenever I press "run" or "install" etc. for software I've downloaded online.

If you delete WinZip then you can use Windows (Zip).
It's built in so there is nothing to download.
I use it and find it as good as WinZip or better.

This will clean out all the hidden folders.

sorry for the late reply...I am still working on the situation. It is still not cleared up.
