Have you logged any errors in the bug tracking system ?  You'll also need to
provide some version numbers of Ark/KDE etc you are using for someone to make
any useful replies.

Suppose that a new KDE user - coming from WinRar, 7zip, PeaZip,
XArchiver, FileRoller, whatever - wants to open some document inside a
zip; he double clicks on the .zip and ark shows up. Nothing particularly
strange here (althought the UI could be somewhat less minimal).

Look up the commands to unzip unrar untar, etc. and do all this from a command line.
It's very straight-forward and unambiguous. Don't depend on Windows habits!
