Download/install 7-Zip, version 4.65, it will automatically open/read all zip/compressed files.

http://download.cnet.com/7-Zip/3000-2250_4-10045185.html

That will take care of all compressed file formats.

As for changing file associations...follow the directions for running this script/file: Easy File Associations, Doug Knox - http://www.dougknox.com/xp/tips/xp_easy_file.htm

This download of 7Zip works for Vista. Choose 64 bit or 32 bit depending on which Vista you have.
