I do not have the current software for screen shots. When I hit enter to extract the .zip file from the subject site only, a Windows pop up box appears, it states (Windows has blocked the extraction of this file). Inside that small box is a more info button. Click on that button and all the information is in reply # 2 of this subject. I have 2 computers, 1 with Service pack 2, the other with Service pack 3 and they both block the .zip files from that site only.

Thanks Jim

Hope this is what you wanted, the state is PA, the county is Dauphin. However I downloaded all the counties .zip files there sitting on my desk top waiting to be extracted.

Thanks, Jim

Starting over
I can unzip files from every other site, it is only the transpo files that Windows blocks. Windows is not blocking previously downloaded .zip files. I can zip a file then unzip it without issue. I tried several different options with blocking. I can unblock the transpo file from its property window and then try to unzip without rebooting. I can unblock it, reboot, and then try to unzip and Windows blocks either way. It does not revert to blocking after reboot. Unblock does not have any effect.

Thanks for helping, Jim

I did not get this in an email, I been downloading zip files from several different sites without issue until the national/tiger/line shapefiles page. I select the state, select a county, check mark all lines, and select the download button. A down load file box pops up, and wants to know if I want to open or save the zip file. I can select either method it downloads to my desktop. I double click on the zip file and point it at the county folder, as soon as I hit enter a windows pop up box appears and blocks the extraction. In side the windows box is a more info button, which I copied and sent to you OZ.
I shut down both firewalls, minimized all security settings in IE7, followed the unblocking instructions from windows and they continue to block.

I like what was offered up, however I am not smart enough to know what that will do to my computer as far as security. I use the computer for business and this kind of thing.
Thank for all the effort,  Jim

here it is, thanks, jim

How blocking some attachments helps protect your computerSending and reading e-mail is one of the most popular activities on the Internet. The widespread use of this technology, however, makes it a primary way for computer viruses to spread. Because viruses and other security threats are often contained in e-mail attachments, Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) helps protect your computer by blocking e-mail attachments that might be harmful.

In most cases, Windows XP SP2 will block files that have the potential to harm your computer if they come to you through e-mail or other communication programs. Windows will block these files if your program is running in a strong security mode. Most files that contain script or code that could run without your permission will be blocked. Some common examples of this file type are those with file names that end in .exe, .bat, and .js.

Blocking these files is very important to do, since directly opening files of this type poses a risk to your computer and personal data.

Is there any way I can open files that have been blocked?

If you are certain that you trust this file and want to open it, follow the instructions below.

Save the file onto your computer.
Click Start, click My Computer, and navigate to the file that you saved.
Right-click the file that you saved, and then click Properties.
Click Unblock near the bottom of the dialog box.

Dan, thanks to all of your help, it is working fine. I went back to where GM exports data to shape files and started fresh.

Thanks again,
Jim

I went into pgAdmin III and found my nhd table. Before I delete/dropped it, I copied the comment.

All 3 water files (nhd_area.sql, nhd_flowline.sql and nhd_waterbody.sql are located in C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\8.3\bin directory. In addition, I followed your tutorial to the letter, I do not use p in my commands unless I am just trying another path.
When I run the following command, this is the response: note, The (ERROR) response runs from row16 to row 265 and the (Insert 0 1) row is approximately 200 rows.  If this step is done right, should I be looking for a file named (area_sql.txt) before I can move to Processing the PostGIS Data.

I finally converted the .shp files to .sql files using PostgresSQL 8.3. I am currently working on Step 4, loading the .sql files into the database without any luck. The following is the command and there response:
C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\8.3\bin> psql -d postgis -h localhost -U postgres -p
 -f nhd_flowline.sql
psql: warning: extra command-line argument "nhd_flowline.sql" ignored
psql: could not connect to server: Cannot assign requested address (0x00002741/1
0049)
        Is the server running on host "localhost" and accepting
        TCP/IP connections on port -f?
Also what are the colors all about when you say Make sure the part in blue points to your actual map directory and remove the red-p if your user name does not use a password.

Thanks Jim

I copied and pasted the code you suggested. (shp2pgsql "C\Penna_Topo\nhd\NHD_Area.shp" NHD_Area > nhd_area.sql) Attached is the response:

C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\8.3bin>shp2pgsql "C\Penna_Topo\nhd\NHD_Area.shp" NHD_Area > nhd_area.sql
C\Penna_Topo\nhd\NHD_Area.shp: shape (.shp) or index files (.shx) can not be opened, will just import attribute data.
C\Penna_Topo\nhd\NHD_Area.shp: dbf file (.dbf) can not be opened.

C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\8.3\bin
Thanks Jim
