A zipped file is a file that is compressed to make it smaller. When you zip a file you create an archive. An archive can contain one or more files zipped together. Zipped files are called that because of the popularity of WinZip, one of the original free programs used to compress files but that is really a misnomer, similar to calling all tissue products Kleenex.
When you open an archive of zipped files you need to extract them. Extracting is the process of expanding the archive and moving the now uncompressed files to another location. When you download the zipped archive and open it, you would extract the archive to C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware Se by using the Extract button. If you were asked if you want to replace the existing file you would say yes.
The WebUpdate component and the search for updates are the same thing, and it is probably the easiest way to do what you are trying to do. Search for updates as you should normally do when opening Ad-Aware and if you need to update to a newer version you should be given that option. Ad-Aware will replace the old version with the new version as it performs the update.
