Have you tested another *.zip file? It could be that that particular one was corrupted.

and what happens when you type in the terminal the unzip command? and secondly did you press F5 after doing "Extract here"? Your desktop might need some refreshing perhaps?

Hi
Thanks frankell and Anisha Kaul, yes, to both of those suggestions. The file did unzip using the command line
