Problems Unzipping?

I've gotten two or three meassages from folks who haven't been able to unzip the last couple of downloads from me.
Is this happening to many people? I doubt it.
87 people downloaded the Butthole Surfers Rembrandt Pussyhorse, and two people replied, if only to say that they couldn't get them unzipped. I don't often download mine to see if they are OK, but when I do, they are alright and I end up having to wait an hour to download something else.
I have updated my zip utility - Stuffit, which has been prompting me to update for a week or so - but I don't think that's it.
Anybody hear of some Mac/Stuffit vs PC/Winzip incompatibilty issue?

If you've been successful at unzipping files from me recently, give me a shout-out.
If you continue to have problems, let me know.
Assuming that the majority isn't having any problems, I'm not sure what I can do.
I am open to suggestions....

As one of the 87, my unzipping also didn't work with a message saying the files were blocked. All your other uploads worked okay with me. I hope this helps.

I will re-up that album later on and see if that helps.
I will try to download the original of a PC (oh how I suffer for my viewers!) to see if it happens to me.
Sorry folks!

That ought to do it.
If it doesn't, I don't know.

I tried it again and the same message 'file blocked to protect your computer' I tried to unblock but it won't work with a zipped file.

yea, I'm one of the ones who couldn't open the butthole surfers - I tried both WinZip and PowerZip - one of them has always opened other files. I think it may be a problem with PC's - The files came zipped in a Mac OS X folder, although I have unzipped other files that came the same way.
Thanks much for the sounds - great taste.

I clicked "repair archive" function on WinRar and it worked for me, I was able to extract the files from the repaired .zip, yes as you might have guessed, on a pc...
