Help, please

Yes, I know I'm an idiot, but I bought the Big Finish 'Broken'and it's a zip file, and it's a
PDF? I always use winzip, now it says my trial has run out, so I downloaded 7zip, but when I try to use it, it flashes and disappears. God, I feel stupid, but I haven't needed a zipfile opened in years. Help, anyone? How do you get to the audio?

There are three things in the zip file.

A JPG which is the CD cover. A PDF, which is only a magazine with interviews and such, you get it for free. And a folder. The downloaded files are in the folder. I always download the MP3 version. Which gives you several numbered MP3 files. I have no idea what the audiobook version does. Which one did you download?

I use WinRar for unzipping stuff. Technically even your Microsoft explorer should be able to do it. I know you can zip stuff with it, so surely it also should unzip as soon as you click a file?

Edit: Maybe it unzips to some folder you don't know. Some "download" folder somewhere. You need to check your settings. Maybe there is a box to tick somewhere, where you can choose whether it shall always unzip into the same folder, or lets you choose where you want to put it. So it is possible when it flashes and disappears, it already has unzipped the file, you just don't know where it is! Do a search for the folder "Torchwood - Broken".

Oh, thank you! I didn't even look at the folder. Duh! I downloaded the mp3, too. Going to go check now. I'll get back to you. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am really good with some computer stuff, and a total loss with other stuff.
