    I'll save you the pain of a headache, avenger_jcc. The file Avid is trying to open is a PGP encrypted file. Hence the pgp extension. Download PGP and setup your key.

    Maybe a lil' reading would help, also.

    The file neto.zip.pgp has been encrypted with PGP. It's not self extracting because you need the pgp program to decrypt the file, the result will be a zip file called neto.zip
    Then you just use whatever program you use to open zip archives with. Pgp has nothing to do with Windows XP.

    Who would like to enlighten me as to what I missed?

    I really wouldn't mind.

    what version pgp is for xp then everything on the site is either
    for Windows 2000 Windows 3.x Windows 95/98/NT Windows ME
    i guess i could choose compatibility mode but.........just to view a single file
    thats a bummer to install pgp

    Windows 2000 version should work with XP. I didn't mean it wouldn't run on XP, just that if you searched something like "pgp windows xp" you wouldn't necessarily find anything because they aren't directly related.

    Also, souleman's right, to decrypt a pgp file you need the alternate key to the one that encrypted it. If you don't even have pgp then who's key was used to encrypt the file in the first place?
