Windows 7: I need help with downloading/using zip files

I need help with downloading/using zip files

Hello everyone. I purchased an album of music in a FLAC file that i downloaded as a ZIP file. I previously got a free download of an album also using a ZIP file and had posted a thread cause I could not open it up and figured it was corrupt. Now I am not sure so I am making another thread. I checked and the file size is correct:

327.9MB My two files (i tried twice) and i have files of 327.0MB Not sure if this is the problem, but I should be able to download a music zip file with my 5G high speed wired internet connection. When i right click the files no drop box appears so I cannot do anything with the file. I could download it as an MP3 but would really NOT prefer to listen to music in this fashion if at all possible.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
