7zip will No longer Extract Files.... ex. wordpress, etc.

Everytime I try to extract a file with 7zip, it no longer works. It doesn't work with winzip either. Everytime I try to download the file I want, it says it doesn't exist. Even when I tell it to show me the file in it's folder and then right click on the file to extract with 7zip, it still doesn't do it. Please Help! I really need to get this working asap. P.S. I have a Dell Laptop Inspiron 1545 Windows 7 .

RE: 7zip will No longer Extract Files.... ex. wordpress, etc.

Uninstall 7zip, uninstall WinZip and any other similar utilities. Also remove any toolbars and unwanted programs. Restart your computer.

Install CCleaner and Defraggler (get the free version from Piriform directly and don't opt to install any unwanted prebundled software).

Run CCleaner (both the cleaner and registry cleaner) and then Defraggler. Restart your computer.

Reinstall 7zip using the .msi installer:
