Places Folders Open in Archive Manager

Am reasonably new to Ubuntu. Presently running 10.10, which was an upgrade from 10.4, which was an upgrade from 9.10, which was a fresh install.

Have actually never ever pressed anything in Ubuntu, yet due to the fact that I intended to make use of the materials of a huge folder on a Windows equipment, I mounted 7zip. Making use of Places, I browsed to the folder I intended to compress, appropriate - clicked, picked Compress, picked 7 - zip and also began the compression. This took several mins to full (the last 7z documents mores than 2.2 GB), yet when I replicated it to the windows equipment, 7 - zip manages it great.

Nonetheless, currently when I open Places, the Home Folder, User folder, Documents, Music, Pictures, Videos and also Downloads all open the Archive Manager which offers a mistake message that it "Could not create the archive" due to the fact that the "Archive type not sustained."

If I open Places/Computer pick the usr folder from position on the left and also appropriate - click/Properties on any one of the folders, Music as an example, there is no area to transform the "open with."

Any person recognize just how to get this functioning once more.
