    .zip problem

    The problem started with a monitor driver download from Dell.
    The instructions on the disk did not match the ones on the website.
    Now I cannot unzip anything, without continous windows opening.
    I then need to log off, or shut down to stop it.

    Is there a way to reset the Vista Ultimate unzip function?

    If I'm in the wrong group, please advise, as well.

    Ok, silly me.
    There is no Vista unzip.
    I removed the zip program I had. - same problem.
    I went into the file association menu, and found that .zip had been
    associated with IE. - (nasty blighters)
    I downloaded another zip program, and associated that program with .zip -
    problem fixed.
