    I have an mdb file in a zip archive on my desktop and when I try and
    extract it I get Windows has blocked access to this potentially harmful
    file? I cannot find anything on this. I know how to unblock from
    Outlook but I dont' know why xp is blocking it I guess cause it has a
    bunch of vba code in it. Any ideas on how to unblock this? Thanks

    Right-click the zip file and go to properties. There will be an option to
    unblock the file there.

    Thanks, that was it, would have never thought it was on the zip file
    cause was extracting some of the files.
