Windows 7: How do I restore Zip file download function to open Zip attachments?

How do I restore Zip file download function to open Zip attachments?

Hello guys! I'm not computer savvy but I can follow directions pretty well. Recently, I've discovered I cannot open any Zip files from my computer. I get an Adobe Acrobat error message saying I cannot open file because it is either not supported or file is damaged. This message comes up every time I try to open a zip file, no matter the source. I suspect it may be a default association problem based on the research I have done but I don't know how to correct the issue. As I said, I don't know a lot about operating systems. Can anyone assist and/or point me in the right direction?

Thanks so much!

Welcome to the forum,

See if this tutorial helps you restore the default file association,

Default File Type Associations - Restore

Zip is at the bottom of the list, pretty thorough instructions at the top of the page.

Any questions, just ask.
