Yes.This happens many times to most of the Zip users. This error may be due to the following reason:

The zip file you downloaded may not be completely done. Sometimes, if the zip file is not complete, you will get this type of error. You must try downloading once again and this time a clean download.  If you are downloading from Internet explorer, then you must make sure that you have done something that will reflect that your download is complete.

Go to any explorer window and then folder options and then on file types tab and then see for Zip files and then click advanced.  You will get a check box with the name "Confirm open after download". Make sure that the box is checked.

The above post is correct for those incomplete downloads of zip file. That is, if you really downloaded the file from the internet. But you didn’t mention anything about downloading the zip file, you are talking about.

You may try repairing the zip file using any file compression program that has an option of repairing damaged compressed file. Like, for example, WinRAR. This compression agent can open compressed files with an extension of:

  •     RAR
  •     ZIP
  •     CAB
  •     ARJ
  •     LZH
  •     ACE
  •     TAR
  •     GZip
  •     UUE
  •     BZ2
  •     JAR
  •     ISO

And can save in 2 formats:

  •     RAR
  •     ZIP

Try opening your zip file with WinRAR. There is a Repair button included in the toolbar above. Just click it and see if it can repair your zip file.
