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.
