I have a computer using Vista business that a user somehow disassociated the zip ap.  Now when a zip file comes in windows tries opening it with an image ap.

I know the straight forward method for changing file associations but the zip utility is not one of the selections.  How do I re-associate zip files to the zip ap?

Thanks

dstewartjr thanks that solution apparently worked as now the zip function works flawlessly, but it still uses the wrong picture icon. A compacted batch of files does not look like a zipped folder.
