Compressed_zipped_Folder in Sendto missing

I have inadvertently deleted the "Compressed (zipped) Folder" option from the <Send To> options directory and consequently I can no longer zip any files. Can anyone help me to get it back as I use this function extensively. I have reloaded the registry entries for this option and I have also run the command rundll32 zipfldr.dll, RegisterSendTo, both to no avail. I can still expand zipped files with no problems. When I run the rundll32 zipfldr.dll, RegisterSendTo I get the message "Error in zipfldr.dll, Missing entry:registersendto". Any sugestions would be appreciated.  

Hi Doug,

1. Download my FileExtInfo Tool from here
2. Unzip the utility and extract the files to Desktop.
3. Double-click "FileExtInfo.exe" to run it.
4. Select the file type [.ZFSendToTarget] from the list box
5. Click "View file association report"
6. Copy the contents of the report and include it in your reply.
