I think you've got the wrong forum. This is for MS Office. Try the Vista or Computer Help forum.

But be sure to tell more details, such as
- what device you downloaded the driver for and why you didn't use the one that came with the printer or with Vista
- what printer
- where did you download from? What filename, how big (size in bytes)?
- what folder did you download it to? what exactly did you do after that?
- what more you did
- what do you mean with "files are zipped and extracted" (that are opposite things, a file can't be both at the same time)
- what do you mean with "gone and spread out". How can it be spread out if it's gone?
- what do the numbers and lettres read?
