i was able to open regedit and import all the reg fixes from the first link except the last one as i pointed out wouldn't download.
I then from the second link:
I opened a command prompt found the correct extension form the text file provided adn typed assoc.zip=CompressedFolder
to which it responded:
.zip=compressedfolder

Seems like everything is back in order.
Thank you VERY much !
