When I tried to open a jar file using winzip I am getting this error :
failed to load Main-class manifest attribute from blablah.jar file.
It is happening all the jar files that I tried to open.
What a wonderful world!

It sounds like it is trying to execute the jar, not open it. Basically it is telling you that there is no Main-Class: declaration in the META-INF/MANIFEST.MF file within your Jar file. This is correct if the jar is not meant to be executed.
Windows is not my native tongue so I'm not sure how to change it but you want WinZip to open the file not run it.
