Re-Enabling Vista's native handling of ZIP files???



I recently installed, and then uninstalled both WinAce and WinRAR in Vista.
Now that they are uninstalled, the "extract all" option in the right-click
menu is still disabled. Does anyone know how to re-enable this option? I
know in XP, you typed "regsvr32 zipfldr" in the Run line. This didn't work
in Vista. I got a message saying "The module "zipfldr.dll" was loaded but
the entry-point DllRegisterServer was not found. Make sure that
"zipfldr.dll" is a valid DLL or OCX file and then try again." Any ideas are
appreciated. Thanks!


Nevermind, I found this answer thanks to Scott in another thread. It worked
for me:

"Start menu
Type "command" in the search box
Then right click on "Command Prompt" as is now shown above in the menu
and select "Run as Administrator"

In the command window type

assoc .zip=CompressedFolder

That will restore .zip files to their original Windows Explorer
