What are you using to open zip files?

You can't open zip files without installing a program to do it. Try 7Zip or Winzip (Trial. Win7 should be able to do so without an additional program

Yes, you have to 'extract' (uncompress) the files from the .zip folder first and then you can open them. You need a program like 7Zip to extract them (unless your OS has an inbuilt program that can deal with .zip folders)
