    I'm not computer savvy and I'm trying to download a mod for Sims 3. I finally extracted the zipped file and what appears next to it is an internet explorer icon. I double clicked on it and it opened up my download manager window like in the picture. Except when I click open it doesn't do anything. I was trying all yesterday to figure this out and it just doesn't open! Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Download & save(do not choose run) go to downloads in file explorer and right click the downloaded zip file and unblock it. Then maybe you will see an .exe file.

    I don't see an unblock button when I right click on it
