These are compressed files, like .zip files are.
google winrar and 7zip a couple of programs that will extract them.

If you got the 7z920.exe from Sourceforge, then all is good, but be aware that there are hacked versions of 7-zip out there that have adware attached.
If your copy of 7-zip opens with a beeuuutiful GUI with a bunch of come-ones,
then you have the hacked version.

7-zip is an open source project and contains no junk. Also, there are different versions of 7-zip for different systems.
This is the official download page for 7-zip freeware (no junk) and if you use this link, then choose the correct version for your CPU and OS system:
