Hi and welcome to GeeksToGo. I see from your profile that your running Windows Vista. Please go to the Control Panel and open Default Programs.

Select the 2nd option down for "Associate a file type or protocol with a program". It will take a bit to load.

Scroll till you find the application extension in the left hand column. Select and then click on "change program" at the top.

Either go with the "recommneded" program or choose "browse" and select which program you would like to open the zip file.
