you need to burn the ISO image to a disc. I recommend that you use the demo version of powerISO for this. Then you can double click it and burn it to a cd.

It sounds like your just trying to open the download without an install. I have never used windows but rumor has it wubi is an easy installer. You can do what a lot of people due is burn a CD and install that way, make sure you know what your doing no matter what.

This is an excellent site. It will help you with almost everything you need to do to get ubuntu working, from downloading the .iso to setting up partitions to post-installation tasks.

Before you go ahead and burn the ISO image of Ubuntu; make sure you check if you have the correct spec.
