Hello lotus8.... Welcome to GeeksToGo, :) :) :)

What you need to do is get either winzip, winrar or 7zip.
Any will be able to extract the files for you.
Personally I suggest 7zip as it seems to be the easiest to understand and work with.
You can get it from HERE

You are very welcome.
Go HERE and scroll down to the CD\DVD Burning Software section. There you will find some free software for what you want.

Hi There

I might be wrong but I'm pretty sure that Hiren's Boot CD is pirated commercial software which is against the TOU here.

Don't want to sound like a killjoy but keep yourself right by using BartPE or UBCD4WIN or Ubuntu Live CD.

Good catch datarunner and since the above mentioned programs are not free then we can not offer any support for this.
This has been turned over for Moderator and Administrator review and assistance will continue if authorized.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
