Windows 7: New Folders always compressed .zip

New Folders always compressed .zip

I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate x64. Whenever I right click on the desktop to create a new folder, I am only ever given the option of creating a new compressed .zip folder. Is there a setting I can't find so I can turn this off. My Pictures folder is .zip as well which prevents any thumbnails being displayed on the picture's file icon.

Thanks for the help
