If you are certain that the Windows Compressed Folder Extraction Wizard is able to handle those file types, do the following in order to reassociate them:

- Start > Run > cmd [ENTER]
- type:
assoc .WAR=CompressedFolder [ENTER]
assoc .JAR=CompressedFolder [ENTER]

/edit:

Of course, you need to type those commands inside the command terminal (DOS prompt) that will open.
