Windows 7: Restore sendto zip option in Windows7 64BIT

Restore sendto zip option in Windows7 64BIT

I seem to have lost my sendto zip option in the sendtomenu. I have attempted the following fixes with no success.

copied the shortcut to the send to folder under user's and it still doesn't show up
Have tried re-register the zipfldr.dll file and that didn't do anything.
I downloaded a registry hack to re-associate ZIP files


Does anyone have any other suggestions? Thanks.

Hello Derk,

Download and merge the ZIP option in the tutorial below. It will restore the default associations for ZIP and CompressedFolder in case you may have then set to something else by mistake and causing it to no longer show up in the Send to context menu.

Default File Type Associations - Restore

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Well, then you could do a system restore using a restore point dated when it was in the Send to context menu.

I have no idea when it disappeared though.

It has to be profile specific because i can logon to the machine with another account and it works.

I do not know what else to suggest other than creating a new administrator account for yourself to use instead, then while in the new account copy all of the contents of the old user account's C:\Users\(user-name) folders (including hidden AppData folder) into the corresponding new account's C:\Users\(user-name) folder. After everything checks out ok, you can delete the old user account while logged in the new user account.

This is in a domain..

I would hate to rebuild the profile.

Tried running SFC? I know it's not a fix-all kind of thing, but sometimes it gets lucky. Another possibility is from some other software installed that gives an option in the context menu. I remember in earlier Windows 7 days Winrar screwed up a lot of users context menus with weird results. Not a fix, but maybe something to look into.
