That's a default setting and right clicking on the object should give 
you other options.  Having a file browser that feels the need to 
immediately unzip every zip file on it's system must be a real mess.  I 
just upgraded yesterday which means I haven't had time to screw up my 
default settings.  That isn't happening with me, yet.

Why run an old edition of Windows when you can run the latest edition

  I've just realized that since upgrading to Feisty, konqueror no longer
treats archives (.zip, .tgz and .tar.gz files) as if they were just 
directory, and insists on opening them with Ark.

I hate Ark!  How do I get Konqueror to behave properly, again?
