Disable built-in support for zip files in Windows

Thursday, May 11, 2006
I am tired of waiting for Windows Explorer to load and cache every zip file in the folder I am trying to display. So, John sent this to me:


In short, run the following command to disable it:

regsvr32 /u %windir%\system32\zipfldr.dll

But, you'll need to rename or delete the
zipfldr.dll file to make it permanent, see Chris' comments at the end of the article.

Maybe I'll go searching for a setting to disable checking if every network share is connected when I haven't clicked on them.. ?
