Windows 7 has zip support built-in. You don't need WinRAR. Double-click the redsn0w zip file, find redsn0w.exe and drag it to your desktop.

(09 Apr '11, 19:13) Bornsrvr Bornsrvr's gravatar image

It's all good @Bornsrvr. I doubt it matters either way, because jailbreaking requires some basic computer skills.
