How to remove the Windows 10 zip/cab integration

Note to future myself:

When yet another major Windows 10 updates comes along and fucks up your settings, don't try to google for solution for this problem because mostly you'll find shitty solutions that gives you errors when you try to fix it via regedit. Yeah, we have been there previously with trying solve the access denied kind of solutions with regedit because your mind couldn't quite remember how the fuck we did it in last time and all the google solutions you find will tell you to delete totally wrong registry key.

In both keys, rename CLSID to CLSID_. That's it. No more stupid integration in Windows Explorer.
