I once came across a zip file made with a program called Powerarchiver. Winzip gave me the same error as you get. When I opened it with Powerarchiver, all was well.
This is a very long shot, the most likely case is that the zipfile you are downloading indeed is corrupt.
Does the built-in support for zip files in xp open it?
Do you have any other programs supporting zip files? Winace, Winrar, etc? If so, try those.
What version of Winzip are you using, BTW?
