W7 and Open Office

I Am operating Windows 7 home premium and have just downloaded and saved Open Office Org

Unfortunately I do not recognise the installation file and don't know where to look for the Open Office help.

Can somebody help me please.

What exactly is the problem?

What exactly is the problem? It sounds like when you try to install OpenOffice you're getting an error, but you don't say WHAT error or give any other necessary details.

Thank you Jimmy for the reply.

I believe that Open Office is not installed on my computer. I know I haven't installed it.
I cannot find any install or setup files and when I click on individual application files, sdraw,scalc etc., an error message reads The system cannot find the file specified.

Obviously, something is wrong.

But you don't tell enough to know what.

Download again and save the installation file (setup.exe or so) on your hard disk. Then run it. What happens?

Thanks to all of you who advised and to those of you who thought about my problem.

Problem solved.

It appears that my original download was incomplete as I deleted this and downloaded again but from a different source and all's well now.
