Download WinRAR. It should automatically open and unpack RAR and ZIP libraries. SRX (self extracting zips with .exe endings) unpack themselves with just a double click. When WinRAR unpacks it creates a subfolder to put the files in. Just use the ADD or OPEN to select the library you want to unpack, then EXTRACT TO, which will give you a screen of option as to where and how to unpack, etc. Pretty easy.
