Windows XP has support for ZIP files built-in. You should just be able to right click the file icon and select extract from the menu.

Yes that is true admin but a little easier way is for you to go to cnet.com and downloading Winzip it gives you a friendly step by step guide on how to unzipp a file and the best part is that it is free.

It's not really free, it's just that the evaluation period never ends. :D

I don't like WinZip, as I think it too bloated and adds to many menu features in its default setup. Actually, the program I use most is WinRAR. Better, faster compression, and nice options for creating self-extracting files. Like WinZip, it's not "free" either, but you can continue to use it after the evaulation period, if you don't mind the "nag screens".

We usually recommend FreeZip, becasue it's simple, and totally free. <_<
