    File Explorer won't let me delete zipped files or something along those lines


    I recently downloaded a picture file from dropbox and they installed in a zipped folder. after I had used the photos I tried to delete them out of the zipped folder. I extracted them, I restarted my computer, I've tried what I thought might fix the issue, but still every time I try to delete these photos from this folder, file explorer stops responding and the deletion process is stuck at 0%. I'm not a very tech savvy person so I appreciate all the help I can get

    :)

    Well, ran into a weird bug with vista, for some reason i cant delete files from desktop, this normaly happens to .exe files, the ONLY fix seems to be to KILL explorer.exe, and delete the file, then restat explorer, anybody got any idea why this happens?

    Folders with zip files

    I have like 30 or more folders and everyone of them has only one single zip file.
    How can I extract all zip files inside of all folders?
