First why are you yelling at us?
Double click the zip file, it should expand to show what is inside it.
look for setup.exe and double click it. What happens?

That's ok Download it again.
Does it ask you if you want to un zip?
It may have unzipped itself. They typically make a new directory that is called what the zip file was called.

Most Zip extracters will put the files into a directory named (whatever the zip was called) It will let you name it what you want and will locate it where you want.
The structure: Root or drive(the physical disk)usually C:\. Now that is further divided into directories. The directory can have in it Sub Directories, and files.
If that was over your head then you should purchase a book, go to a class or search the web for instruction on basic computer knowledge because it only gets complicated from there. (Attributes, permissions, extensions, etc..)
and that's a lot to do on this site.( it's been done already somewhere else)
