Go back to the website and look for instuctions how to open the zip. You may need special zip software. I dont know.
The zip that you used should have opened it.
Go to the website and download once more to your desktop and try to open it.

This is a first for me, zip always worked, but here you go
How to Download Windows PowerShell 1.0

Start with a system restore point, I have no idea of what will happen when you download.
