HOWTO: Disable Zip Folders



How do i disable the "Display Zip files as compressed folders" feature in
Explorer in Windows Vista?

In Windows XP (and as i understand it, in previous builds of Vista) you
could unregister the COM dll zipfldr.dll using
regsvr32 zipfldr.dll -u

But in RC2 (Build 5744) the file doesn't export DllUnregisterServer; it's
not a COM library anymore. (The shell team must really be grumpy)

So, to rephrase my question, is a more facetious manner:

When the feature "Display Zip files as compressed folders" will be added to
Vista, where will it be located? Under Folder Options do you think?
