    When I open (double click) any zip file, it opens a blank browser (Internet Explorer) . sfc /scannow gives no help. system restore has no live restore points. Any remedy for this please

    It's probably just a file association issue which could be fixed by reinstalling whatever tool you use for ZIPping. What OS are you running and what ZIP product do you normally use?

    I have no tool whatever(like winzip or other), XP own tool only(zip file lookslike a folder with a zipper).

    Hi visitor,

    Surf to this site and download and use the Zip association file. At the bottom of the list:

    HI Pieter_Arntz

    did the reg correction but NO joy. still when (double click/open ) it directs to a blank IE page. however,
    right click>exract
    is ok even before downloading the reg file.

    Hi visitor,

    In Explorer click Tools > Folder Options > Filetypes tab and scroll down to zip.
    What does it say?

    from
    http://www.xelation.nl
    and here is a screenshot(by the way I cannot attach any pic is this service for registered only)

    I clicked "windows default" in the program but it didn't restore the default. this program has changed the way XP behaves

    Hi visitor,

    Uploading is for registered members only, yes.

    Maybe you can contact the makers of this software and ask if they have encountered this problem before.

    I'm out of ideas right now. Everything looks to be normal, but it does not behave that way. o_O

    Regards,

    Pieter
