Etcher shows: invalid archive image error after Windows 7 was updated worded fine before

Etcher worked fine before Windows 7 was updated! gives an invalid archive image error when a zipped file is selected. the very same file worked prior to the windows 7 update.

I downloaded a prior 1.2.2 version with the same result… W7 zip works fine on the file which is NOOBS from ADAFRUIT.

Has anyone seen this issue???
