Is it possible to revert the Explorer shell in 2008 R2 64-bit so that it is the 32 bit shell? Can we mix and match?

Not sure if this is what you're looking for, but I use this on my Win7 64bit machine:

Do these programs offer shell integration. For example if I install winzip and then later I right click on a file will these Explorer substitutes show  Zip/Archive along with other option such as Open, Open With, Sand with ... as options

Yes, it has shell integration.  I haven't installed WinZip with it, but the proper right-click menu options are there for all my other file types.  It's highly configurable too, you can customize Windows Explorer, add custom buttons, etc.

Your answer sounds promising. I am looking for some time/test machines to try them out on. I should be able to do so in the next little while. If not, I will close the question.
