Try creating a new user, give it admin status, and see if that can download zips.

I already tried making a new user admin account and it does the same thing.

Run sfc /scannow in an elevated command prompt. Then run a full system scan with Malwarebytes in safe mode.

Hmmm... thought the new user would fix it.

OK, here's a couple of shots in the dark...

Have you tried to change where the zips are saved to?

I wonder... if you delete the AppData\Local\Temp folder, will Windows recreate it? I don't know if it regenerates like some other folders do (recycling bin, for instance).

Keep in mind that if NOD32 subscription lapses, or has problems,, NOD32 will cripple the system.
You may notice things like, not being able to save pictures, or saved pictures from the net will be all black.
And there are probably other things.

This is why I stopped promoting NOD32.
