ArcGIS.com map viewer issue - shapefiles will not post

Hello -

I am getting the following error message when I attempt to "add layer from file":
"Unable to import this shapefile. (Invalid Shapefile: missing shp file.)".

This seems strange because I have looked at the file extensions in explorer (for numerous files),
and those sets contain the usual .shp and .shx formats, etc.

Earlier, I was having the issue that the shp files were transformed into AutoCAD format -
this I fixed by setting the default opening program to ArcMap, at which point they reverted to
usual file types. Since then I have created others as well, and, although they appear normal,
still yield the same upload problem (see attached zip if needed).

Any suggestions? Could this be a problem with the online application itself, or is there some ArcMap option
I should consider?

Thanks!
