VLC Virus or Malware??? - PaulIIII - 03-28-2020

After using VLC for years, I have lately noticed a problem. Any time I need to extract a file from .zip, VLC automatically trys to "open" the file. It replaces Windows default "extract files" function and will try to open any and all files I need to unzip. Of course, I have 7-zip installed so I am able to do it that way, but I don't like the VLC automatically taking the windows function of unzipping files away. I read about it on another blog and they instructed "just go to control panel and uninstall VLC, then re-install it" I did that. And a week later here I am back at the same problem. Please investigate this problem and I hope you make a video on it . Thanks.
