If you have upgraded to Windows XP then you will probably have used a program like "WinZip" to open any Zip files you have.

With Windows XP, Microsoft have given us a built-in Zip feature.

However, this new built-in XP Zip support just tends to get in the way and is no where near as feature laden as WinZip.

So the good news is that you can disable the Windows XP built-in Zip support! (and enable it again if you ever want to!)

To Disable:

1) Start Menu > Run

2) Type:

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


To Enable:

1) Start Menu > Run

2) Type:

regsvr32 %windir%\system32\zipfldr.dll


And that's it!
