How To Open Zip Files In Windows Vista?

It used to work before but now when I try to open/extract zip files the computer screen goes all crazy so I have to restart the computer. Also noticed that the zip folder icon does not show anymore, just blank space. Someone said I need to install WinZip to open zip files but I am sure I use to be able to open them quite easily before. Any ideas how to fix this?
