go to my comp click view on toolbar ,folder options , file types , this is where you set what files open with what
you could left click (select a .zip files in explorer)then hold down shift while right clicking the .zip file and choose "open with" from the popup menu and when the dialog pops up choose winzip (whatever you wish to open .zip files) and click in the "always use this program to open file of type"..
