Q&A: How do I unblock zip files that Windows has blocked?

Question by Kaytee: How do I unblock zip files that Windows has blocked?
I downloaded some zip files, but when I try to extract them, I get a message: “Windows has blocked access to these files to help protect your computer”. As help menu explained, I went to zip folder properties and clicked “unblock”. However, when I try to extract the files, I get the same message again. How can I open them?!

PS – zip files are from a trustworthy source (my work).
