Open Winzip, browse for the file, and I'm pretty sure it says something like, "extract" or something like that. Been years since I've used it.

I just remember being on my computer while my brothers were on the computers in their rooms a couple years ago. We had our headsets on, talking through skype or something, and I was installing some demo (BF2 I think) so we could play together. They asked me if I installed it yet, and I said, 'I have to unzip it first." My aunt was in the room with me, and she could only hear my end of the conversation, so after I said that she was like, "Whaaaa? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif" LOL! And she's so computeri lliterate, I don't think I was able to explain it to her properly. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

Anyways, hope you get it working.

Use Winrar, it can open most compressed file types and its pretty easy to use.

Are you using XP or an earlier OS? XP has it's own built in extractor.

If the file has a .zip extension and you have Winzip, then you should be able to double click on it and once the file is open, you will see all the files on the left hand side of the zip window. To extract, click the extract button and a window will open with a tree, browse to where you want to extract the files. If there is a setup file in there, just click on it and it will run right from Winzip.

7-zip beats EEEEVERYTHING.

7-zip is truly incredible and will open (almost) everything.

Back to WinZip. It's a very easy to use program, if you use the 'right-click' options rather than opening it.

Simply right-click the file, highlight WinZip and select the action you want: "Extract To..", "Extract Here...", etc. simple.
