Hi, need help with Calibre

Hi, I just went in to Calibre to read a book it's an epub book and it has an error message "Could not open book" "file is not a zip file" can someone help me. Just a warning I am very computer illiterate. But please help. As I can't access my files.

if the file extension is .zip (last part of file name) try opening the original zip, extracting the epub, or dragging and dropping the epub to calibre.
Of course it could be a corrupted file in which case you should be able to get another from the provider.

Helen, thank you so much for responding, but I restarted Calibre and it's fine now, not sure what happened, but thank you so much for trying to help me.
