    Unregister the DLL used to support it:

    regsvr32 /u zipfldr.dll

    When you want to use it again, register the DLL.

    Select Run from the Start Menu:

    Type or Paste: regsvr32 /u zipfldr.dll at the prompt and click OK.
    and
    Type or Paste: regsvr32 /u cabview.dll at the prompt and click OK.

    The change will take effect immediately, but you may have to restart Windows
    for all traces of the built-in ZIP support to disappear.

    If, at any time, you wish to re-enable Windows XP's built-in ZIP support:

    Select Run from the Start Menu:

    Type or Paste: regsvr32 cabview.dll at the prompt and click Ok.
    and
    Type or Paste: regsvr32 zipfldr.dll at the prompt and click Ok.

    The change will take effect immediately, but you may have to restart Windows
    for all features of the built-in ZIP support to be available.
