Cannot open WinZip files that are password protected RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have recently downloaded files from dafont.com, and it was working fine up until a few days ago when suddenly I see PASSWORD PROTECT when I try to extract the files and put them in my C:\WINDOWS\Fonts folder.  What password do I have to put in?

    The only difference I have made to my computer is to password protect my login into the computer.  I am using Windows XP OS.

  • One person who replied (the only one by the way) I assume she is a moderator, has categorically stated that dafont doesn't password protect it's fonts.  She keeps asking did I download from the dafont site, and I replied I did.  I did delete them all and tried to download them one at a time and the same thing happened.  On the winzip extraction window, it has two buttons; one of which says password.  I enter a password to use, and still have to repeat it several times, and still cannot unzip it to my fonts folder.

    The only thing different I did is choose to password protect my login at the welcome window.  Would that have anything to do with it?

    Any help is appreciated.  Thanks.
