    Ok so in my other thread I said i was getting new parts, and ended up having to install vista instead of XP. (see other thread for why)

    So after the install and updates, I was trying to unzip some stuff that had been saved on cd, and i noticed that the unzipping was taking for ever.

    There where a lot of files but the file sizes where small. total there where 2500ish files but a total file size of like 35mb, the estimated timer on there was showing me between 1.5-2 hours to finish the unzip..... wierd, I was thinking it would pu speed but no it didnt. So i dl the winzip free version, and it unzips the entire package in like 20 seconds......

    Is there a known issue with vista and unzipping files?

    I haven't had any problem with mine, I've been running vista home premium for about 3 months now.
