    That file looks to be a ".jpg" and not a zip file. Should be able to go back to the original download and just double click on it.

    And welcome to the forums

    it looks like it might be a problem with the filename encoding (ISO-8859-1 versus UTF-8??)

    if it manages to extract the files (just can't display them) then you may be able to use convmv to correct the names - do you know where the archive came from (Windows?) and/or what locale?

    The command line unzip provides an option to disable handling of Unicode in file names.
    Code:
    unzip -U zipfile

    Is there any way so i can avoid going to the command line all the time?
