Recently uninstalled Winzip and I can't download stuff anymore?

Well I recently uninstalled Winzip because I whenever I downloaded something, it would show up as winzip and when I clicked on it, I needed to get the pro version of Winzip. I deleted it and now whenever I try download something it just shows up as if its an Internet Explorer file and then when I click on it in uncontrollably duplicates itself and keeps popping out so I have to manually reboot my computer. So how can I download stuff normally again. By the way I have a PC Windows Vista and I'm trying to download Paint.NET. Thank you.


Answer

You just need a program that register .zip files with
When you first installed WinZip, it overwrites the default registration of .zip (Which was with Windows extract app)
And after uninstall, the .zip files are not registered with any app

So installing a program that register .zip files with, will solve the problem

I would suggest installing 7z, it is a free and light, and does what WinZip does mostly
