This happens every time I try to unzip a zip file. I'll doubleclick the file and the Archive Utility opens and says it is expanding, but the progress bar just keeps moving those stripes and nothing happens. I have to force quit Archive Utility. This happens EVERY time and I have stuff I need to unzip. Any ideas?

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
