Associating cabview.dll

This may be the wrong section, but here it goes.

I installed WinRAR and I forgot to tell it not to associate with .cab files. Now I need to associate cabview.dll with .cabs again...how do I do this?

Hey what you need to do is to go to winrar and un register it with winrar. what do you want to assoc with *.cab?

Run WinRAR as admin, then go into Options --> Settings --> Integration tab and uncheck cab files and reboot. That should revert it to cabview.dll.

Can you explain why you don't think cabview is associated? Have you rebooted?
