How can I stop Windows XP from showing Zipped files as folders?
XP will treat Zip files like folders, which is nice if you've got a fast machine or if you don't have a registered version of a good archiving program (such as WinZip, WinRAR, WinACE and so on).
On slower machines you can make XP leave zip files well alone by going to the RUN command and typing
regsvr32 /u zipfldr.dll
If you change your mind later, you can put things back as they were by typing
JohnnyGreb - thanks for the fix. my issue is not with a compression tool its with XP searching the large zip files i have on my hard drive when i want to search the C drive. even with a 3 Ghz proc its an annoyence when i knew the searches could be a lot faster without searching zipped stuff.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
