    do you use winzip or something comparable to unzip/decompress the file?

    Where are you getting this file from and what is it supposedly?

    A zip file typically has a .zip .rar .tar .gz or some similar extension, and when unzipped just extracts the files contained there in. If an .exe file was in it, an .exe file will come out, a .txt will show up as .txt when extracted, etc. It doesn't sound like there was an .alx file in the original source.

    I know if you have roadrunner and use the CA Security Center it changes the zip eztension to ewf. You have to change the filetype to all files and add .zip to the end of the file name and it should save as a zip file like it's supposed to.
