After considerable browsing (thank you, Google), I have a solution that works. It is based on fixes for Vista, but works 100% for my Windows 7 64-bit install. 

You will need to edit your registry (delete 2 different keys), so I highly recommend you back up your registry or better yet, make an image of your OS drive (probably C:\). I use Norton Ghost 2003 (only from a NG 2003 boot floppy) and have never had a single problem. Norton Ghost does not have to be installed on your system for this to work (in fact, it will stall due to compatibility issues). 

First a note regarding the various reg tweaks that are available for download (e.g., "vistaunzip.reg"). These will NOT work - undoubtedly due to ownership/permissions issues. 

The following two (2) keys need to be deleted fromthe registry:

For zip files delete the regkey

For cab files delete


When you try to delete them, you will almost certainly get an "access denied" or "failed" type of message. Before you can delete them, you need to change the permissions/ownership of these two keys. Here is how to do it:

01 - open regedit from the RUN console

02 - navigate to the first key that needs to be deleted (HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{E88DCCE0- B7B3-11d1-A9F0-00AA0060FA31})

03 - right click on the key and select "Permissions"

04 - click on "Advanced"

05 - click on the "Ownership" tab

06 - in the "change owner to" section, highlight your username

07 - check the box for "replace owner on subcontainers and objects"

08 - click on "Apply"

09 - Click "OK"

10 - Under "Security" tab, highlight your username and check the box for "Allow Full Control" (located mid-menu in the "Permissions For Administrators" section)

11 - click "Apply" and "OK"

12 - you can now delete the registry key. MAKE SURE YOU ARE ON THE CORRECT KEY!

13 - repeat the process for the 2nd key.

14 - reboot (changes will NOT take effect until you reboot


16 - thanks to the original solvers of this problem, whomever they may be.


I would like the same help that deedvd is seeking. How do I DISABLE the zip folder function? I do NOT want my zip files to appear as "folders". Why anyone in Redmond thought this was a brilliant idea is beyond me. It adds to clutter and makes file browsing a lot less enjoyable. I simply want my zip files to appear as files - with the ".zip" extension. Just like every other file. The responses to deepdvd were probably as frustrating to him as they are to me. Changing the default program for zip files is IRRELEVANT. It only changes whether Windows or some third party app (7Zip, Izarc, etc) OPENS the files. They continue to show up as folders.  I tried the unregister script (earlier thread)

"Running regsvr32 /u %windir%\system32\zipfldr.dll should be enough to disable zip functionality. Then just run your 3rd party archite application and let it re-register archive files." and it did not work. I got the same error that deeddvd got "The module "C:\Windows\system32\zipfldr.dll" was loaded but the entry-point DllUnregisterServer was not found.

Make sure that "C:\Windows\system32\zipfldr.dll" is a valid DLL or OCX file and then try again."

I would love to find a resolution to this problem. If anyone out there knows how to DISABLE the zipfolder function, please post the solution. I am thanking you in advance.
