hi, anyone installed a zip or rar archiver and then when you right click on desktop and new the compressed folder icon is gone and instead a win rar or other program is in its place. thats what happened to me and im trying to get the compressed folder icon back, anyone know the registry key for it as i dont know how to do it using menus and options etc.

You dont say what OS your using , but have you tried right clicking the icon , select properties , and use the `change icon` button , assuming you have the choice.

OK , try foldar options , click on the file types tab scroll down till you get to the program icon you want to change and highlight it , now click the advanced button , you have another option here to change the icon.
