Hello

 

Im not sure why(or how) but most of my folders in my Download directory have at some point become zip folders. The files contained in these folders are .srt files. when I click on these folders a pop up occurs asking me to purchase winzip.

 

How can i open these folders - or turn them back to normal folders - without having to purchase a product to do so?

 

Thanks in advance.

Check the file association for .srt files...in Folder Options/File Types.

 

What is the associated program for opening .srt files?
