  1. I don't understand why every time I c lick on an update I extract it says its completed but the new updates never show up in spooky2. can someone explain why it never updates the program or what I am doing wrong?

  2. I've never had an issue with zip folders, but when I rtclk on a zip file, "extract" does not appear in the list of options. Still trying to figure out how to extract a zip file [not folder]. p.s. W-8.1

  3. Obviously there is a hell of a lot you are not telling just to get where you start. Windows Hate simply puts up a black screen with a short message to go to the app bar which does not exist.!!!!!!!!

  4. ok guys here is a comment that has an easier way for exactly windows 8
    1: create a new folder with the same name of the folder you want to unzip
    2: open the folder you want to unzip and drag all of them into the new folder
    3: delete the old folder and replace the new one exactly where the old folder was
    4: you're welcome now it's a unzip folder

  5. I have windows 8.1 and I downloaded a 473 kb zip file. I extracted it but it can neither  be opened with word , nor wordpad, nor notepad . On clicking it twice a box appears stating : Do you want the following program to make changes to computer ?
    what to do ?
