.zip problem

#1
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.

Actually there is however its a good idea to replace it as it is SLOW and
has a few issues.
