Associating WinZip or 7Zip with dropdown menu

Hi all,

I just started using Windows 7 and I'm trying to configure it the same way as I had my old system. One of the things that isn't working is:

I re-installed WinZip (Version 9) and 7Zip. Both these utilities would show up when I right clicked on a file. They would have a sub-menu as well. If I clicked on a zipped file, one of the sub-menu options would be extract all to here.

These options are no longer showing up.

How do I make that happen.

Dear enatar

*Open WinRAR from the start menu entry. If you can’t see WinRAR entry in the start menu, go to C:\Program Files\WinRAR (where “C” is your OS drive), and double-click  WinRAR.exe to open WinRAR.

*Switch to “Options” tab and then, open “Settings” option.

*Once again switch to “Integration” tab in the new window.

*Check the option named “Integrate WinRAR into shell” and click ok.

Now you should see the WinRAR entry.
oh sorry i thought it was winrar , i had the same problem with it :) .. but i guess you will fid the same option in 7zip or winzip.

I'm trying but it's not happening.  the 7zip that runs is an executable (.exe) file. There's no place to set the options. Any other suggestions. Anything you can do in Windows 7 to help this?
when it opens the EXE .. doesn't it show an icon on the taskbar where you can gain access to options from , or even from the start menu .. there has to be a place to configure it from.
