A file with the extension of .zip only requires another software download to use.

ZIP is a file archive and compression utility.

If you have Windows 98 with Plus, or a newer version of Windows, the ability to read and extract files from a zip archive is built into Windows Explorer.

Otherwise, you can download an evaluation copy of WinZip at www.winzip.com

Or several different 'freeware' utilities at either
www.completelyfreesoftware.com
www.nonags.com (compression utilities)
www.download.com

www.winzip.com offers an evaluation version. However, for some reason, it does not expire. It let's you extract files to your hearts content.

WinRAR is better because it extract .zip as well as .rar compressed files. Do a google for it.

Winrar = covers most compressed files
Winzip = covers zip only and a few others.

Both are free to use, except winzip nags you alot.
