I think you need to a program to unzip a file. I'm think that a zipped file has been specially compressed to take up less space when you download it? Sorry, someone else might know some specifics, that's all the vague information I can pull out of my head. Grin

Urban threads gives you the option to download a zipped file or unzipped file  if you are unsure of how zipped files work you should download the unzipped version
