Undoing RAR

Gel

Anyone advise when I can find the Windows Compressed folder prog as I
want to reassociate with my zip files after I installed RAR utility.

Right clicking on a zip file, I just van't seem to find the
"Compressed Folder " (Unzip) utility.

If you have a .zip or .rar file and a program to deal with them, you
need to associate the .zip and .rar files with the program.

Here is a MS article that explains the process of setting up a new
program to existing files (sounds like you) or changing an existing
association:

Thanks all; used Doug Knox's after backing up; wasn't certain it would
be Vista compatible
but it certainly is.

Vista?

Why are you asking Vista queries in "windowsxp.general"?

I see that you have used the [great] website :

http://www.dougknox.com/xp/file_assoc.htm

....to fix your problem.

However, I would advise that if you ever install WinZip or WinRAR again
that you take notice of the questions it asks when installing these
programs.

When it shows you the 'file associations' page, that you make sure you
deselect the .cab and .zip file types as Windows XP already deals
with these types of file (much better, in my opinion, than either
utility).

If you don't, you will be in the same situation, as they will usually
leave you with no associations for these file types when uninstalled.
