Depends on the program used to decompress it. I would suggest getting
another decompresser. You might even consider getting the free version
of Aladdin's decompresser for this. The windows version "corrects"
problems made due compression under the Mac. Have you tried 7-Zip to
unzip it? That is one great tool and open source. It has replaced several bought programs I used
previously. :)
