A user reports that "Extract All" is not an option when they go to access .zip folders.  They had installed a shareware .zip program that has expired.  Is "Extract All" an option in Vista Home versions?  If so, is there a way to restore that menu entry to the sub menu when you right click on a .zip folder?  Thanks.

If the above does not work, download and run zipfix_vista.reg below.

Rename zipfix-vista.reg.txt to zipfix-vista.reg after download and double click it to merge the reg file into the registry of your windows vista.
