How do you turn off the feature by which XP actually reads inside a zip
file?

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.
