Hi, i am running windows xp pro, and before i installed winzip, there was a compressed folder icon when i right click, new, compressed folder which was a good utility. But now it has the winzip icon which isnt that good, and i wish to change back. I uninstalled winzip to no avail, cant get it back. Any ideas, might involve editing registry andi am confident in doing this, if any of you can offer me the reg keys or some simpler way, help much obliged.

To create a new one, right click the Desktop, then New then Compressed Folder.

erm...My problem is that the compressed folder icon is gone after installation of winxzip and in its place is a winzip folder.

Change the icon for zips/compressed:

Windows Explorer/Tools/Folder Options/File Types - Advanced.
