you might want to right on the file and select your default program for opening zip files. the wrong program may be associated as default.

Hey Bills,
Those do not appear to be zip files. Do you have any zip files you could test?

Bills, you have to load the ABR file from within PS.
Don't know what version you are using but in CS4 you select the brush tool. then from the brush on the toolbar select the down arrow, then the arrow pointing right, then 'preset manager', then select 'brushes' from the drop down, then 'load' and point to your ABR files.
Easy!

Another way to open ISO files
If you occasionally have to open ISO files, but don't want to download a third party problem (certainly not one called demon or devil or whatever), here's one way to do it: in XP Mode, one of the options is to mount an ISO image rather than the CD-ROM drive at startup.
