How can I get back the Explorer zip facility? It has
disapeared, I suppose when I installed ZipGenius.
It did not return when I removed ZipGenius.

What I have found is a restore command,

regsvr32 c:\windows\\system32\zipfldr.dll

but it did not help. When I check registered file
types, zip is not among them. Or, more exactly:
Things seem to work when I have a zip file,
what does not work is creating a new zip folder,
when I press the right button and "New" I can
only create a new folder or a shortcut, not a
zip folder.

Thanks for any answer

Thanks, I already tried it but it did not help
(I got an OK massage too).

Thanks, it worked. It does look a little funny with the new entry
at the bottom of the list but it works OK.

Just "OK" Sharon? I thought you'd set your standards higher than that ;-)

At least okay would be... okay. But yes, I always prefer the "best." ;)
