Zipped files... opened with a program
This is ridiculous. While I was very angry at a zipped file that i couldnt
open, I made the mistake to do : OPEN WITH... some random program. Wich means
that every zipped folder now appears as an openable file from this program.
How can I open those files with winexplorer! I need help on that plz.

PS- I have Vista.

Re: Zipped files... opened with a program
Right click to “open with”…(make sure and check “choose default program” to
open these kinds of files)----“browse”---local disk ( C ):----“Windows”-----“Explorer”…..Select
this “Explorer” (.exe file) as your program to open .zip files.

Go to the following website.

File association fixes for Windows Vista:
http://www.winhelponline.com/article...ows-Vista.html

You will see a box there with a lot of file types in it. Click the ZIP file
box. This will download a small registry file. Download the file to your
Desktop. Go to your Desktop and double click the file. Answer affirmative to
all of the registry merge prompts.

This will set the Zip file association back to the default setting.
