Use System Restore to when it worked the way you wanted.
I do a lot of downloading for my sims game. I was using the windows "unzip" tool and I wanted something else. So I downloaded a zip program but did not like how it worked so I uninstalled it. But now my windows unzip tool will not work. I do not even get the option anymore to unzip.
Even when I click on download (for a sims file) I do not have the option to open. Only save. Before I had the open option then I would use the windows unzip program and all was fine. But now I can't use it. ANd the unzip program I want will take 6 hours to download as I am dial up. So I was going to wait until I get cable to download that one. Which will be Tuesday.
