    Hello there,

    Recently installed XP and don't like one of the things it does.
    Under Windows Explorer if I click on a folder that has zip files in it, it will show those zips as folders and will list them on the left hand side.
    How do i change this so that it doesn;t show up as folders and only file as Win98 did ?

    thanks
