When in any folder, press on the Tools menu, and choose Folder Options. Choose the View tab, and check that Hide extension for known file types is unchecked. Now check if the blabla.pk3 is turned into blablabla.pk3.zip if yes, just delete the .zip and you're done. If it still doesn't work, tell me.

(note that some of what I wrote might be not exact, for I have the hebrew version of windows)

I use winzip, and never have any problems with it, so i dont think thats it.

The reason its not showing up might be that you have incorrect icons, or no icons at all.

There are way too many possible problems.
