    when I right-click an item in Windows, I've got an extra "Open With..." and I'd really like to get rid of the WinZip option.

    Is this a registry tweak, or can somebody tell me the Windows (2K Pro) trick to change this?



    TIA!!

    cant you make that change from winzip itself, under preferences or options or configuration.

  3. it's in the shell file when you install winzip

    You can go here in the registry to change it:
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\wi nzip

    Just delete that file and it will be gone.

    Safest way:

    Unistall winzip

    reboot

    Reinstall winzip and when it ask to "Add to shell extensions" say NO
