Problem with driver download zip file

I have just clean installed my Sandy Bridge which has an Asus Xonar DG sound card in and am trying to get the driver for it. However I download the driver from the Asus site only to find it is in a form that cannot be opened by Windows (see pic)

I have tried clicking on the various zip file openers - the free ones only to be met with something that is so complicated it is becoming VERY frustrating and I am SUPER annoyed by Asus putti out this crap. I have the Asus disk but not with me at my place is there an easier way to get the driver installed as I have tried various methods such as copying it to a stick and transferring it only to be met with the same message.

Any help really appreciated as this is not the first time this has happened to me and I have had to resort to getting an install disk for whatever it is.

PS Have found a spare disk in my spares room but I would like to know what is with that RAR stuff is all about??

Thanks Thelma and Mike I might just try those for the experience - just lucky I found the extra disk I didn't realise I had and yes Asus need a short sharp swift kick this isn't the first time I have hit this one just for a simple driver it is ridiculous.
