    Mike,

    I am not a "techy" - so...when I click on the .zip file I have an option to "open" (instead of save as). When I do this and click on the file I get a message that the "improper merges can cause damage....." I just want to be sure that this is OK.

    Thanks

    It's already saved. You can rename it or copy it, the simplest of procedures, or you can make a zip in a zip, I recommend 7-Zip, http://www.7-zip.org/

    Hi

    I always save them to a Downloads folder first and then use an unzip program to open them, 7-zip works fine, that's what I'm using too.

    I'm not sure about the message you get, I haven't seen that myself but it probably has something to do with merging compressed files.
    Once you set 7-zip as the default, you won't have to think about it when you click on a file it will open it.

    Mike

    It doesn't matter whether the download is saved or not. The important thing is adding it to the registry.

    Mitchell, I download and run and it just opens up my notepad and nothing else. I am not a computer guy so what am I missing.

    Thanks!
