XP Registry Edit for not Searching Archives

http://www.annoyances.org/exec/forum/winxp/r1039550270

I even tried deleting zipfldr.dll but found that XP's System Restore would restore zipfldr.dll and re-associate it with .ZIP. To finally get around this I had to turn off System Restore (System Properties | System Restore Tab) and then run the registry fix

"regsvr32 /u %windir%\system32\zipfldr.dll"

and now I can search my harddrive without it looking through every zip file I have and my Winzip program does not have to fight to keep it's association with .zip files.
