    What is the deal with XP and ZIP files. I use Winrar 2.9 and anytime when I am browsing my files in Windows Explorer, if I single click on a ZIP file, CPU usage jumps to 100 % or so for a brief moment. It really is bothersome, and only happens with ZIP files not RAR files or ACE files.

    Lonman Bleh!

    Great tip! Here's the article's instructions:

    Select Run from the Start Menu.
    Type regsvr32 /u %windir%\system32\zipfldr.dll at the prompt, and click Ok.
    You'll have to restart Windows for this change to take effect.
