Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Can't Create Zip Folder Anymore

Today, I just realised that when I tried to right click and click new, the Zip folder option wasn't there anymore. Can someone tell me why this is happening and how to solve it?

Hello 7noob,

Using step 3 in the tutorial below may be able to restore the New -> Compressed (zipped) Folder context menu item for you.
