    You didnt mention what email client you are using, but you can usually just open up the email, and there will be a link or button to save the attachment (in Outlook Express its a paperclip icon). Save it to the desktop, double click, and it should open in WinZip.

    It was saved when you hit Save. Save it to the desktop so it is easier to locate.

    Or search your hard drive for the file, its in there somewhere.
