How to disable the built-in zip folder feature in Vista

Hi,

The zipflder feature slows windows explorer when list the content of a
directory that contains lots of zip files.

I tried "regsvr32 /u zipfldr.dll" as I did for Windows XP but got an error
message:

"The module zipfldr was loaded but the entry-point DllUnregisterServer was
not found. Make sure that zipfldr is a valid DLL or OCX file and then try
again."

I googled but found noting helpful, nearly all results are for Windows XP
but not for Vista :-(

Thanks

Use START - type RUN in the SEARCH BOX (will not work in START - RUN)

regsvr32 %windir%\system32\zipfldr.dll

to re-enable START - type RUN in the SEARCH BOX

regsvr32 /u %windir%\system32\zipfldr.dll

Still got the same error.

The regsvr32 did load the zipfldr.dll but cannot find the entry-point of
DllUnregisterServer :-(

For zip files delete the regkey
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{E88DCCE0-B7B3-11d1-A9F0-00AA0060FA31}

For cab files delete
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{0CD7A5C0-9F37-11CE-AE65-08002B2E1262}

You should backup/export those keys before deleting them in case you change
your mind later.
