We have a computer that has lost the ability to create zipped folders. This has been this way for several months and when it began is unknown so a system restore is not going to work. I have tried putting the command back in the send to folder from the Default Users profile but this does not work. I have tried to issue this command from the run command box "rundll32 zipfldr.dll,RegisterSendto" but it gives this error; "Error in zipfldr.dll Missing entry: RegisterSendto". I ran sfc /scannow three times with no change in the situation. Any ideas? I can reload but if I can salvage this install install I would prefer that choice.

This is the simplest method. Just download following zip file, extract it and copy the extracted file to "Send To" folder:

These do not work. The file has been 'replaced' many times with no change.

Try #3 under Here's How.  This is a .reg file that will make the appropriate changes automatically.

Back up the Registry before using the .reg file in case you do not like the results.

A work around would be to install 7-Zip.

If none of the above work, here is a long reference with some other ideas.
