I'm having some problems with the zip feature. (Another zip program messed it up).
Is there a way I can remove them and reinstall? I'm thinking that might fix it.


You might try reregistering the dll by going to Start - Run and type regsvr32 zipfldr.dll and click ok.

Then is asks if I want to designate zipped folders as the application for handling zip files, but when I say yes it never works.
The solution to the problem

Here's your solution :):

Open up Command Prompt (Start>Run>cmd)

Type in the following and press enter:

Tell me how it goes ...
