Compressed File Corruption in Win7 64

By pnims ·
When I create compressed folders in win7 (x64) they are fine until I try to put something in them. Then I can't open them any more, or delete them. I get errors that access to the folders are denied. I also can't delete them because windows says I need permission from my user to continue. A reboot and a login with a different admin user gets the same.

Any suggestions?

Immediate Problem Solved

by pnims In reply to Compressed File Corruptio ...

Looking at it this morning, I noticed that the zip folders had no permissions assigned, even for the owner of the file, so a quick add permissions resolved the issue for now, but why would Windows loose the permissions right after the folders were created? In a possibly related issue, I found I was unable to install a new program because I no longer had rights to Windows/temp. Was there a permission change with a windows update or something?
