Have you not got the right click option on XP?

If you have cant you just click and rename (delete the .zip) part? I dont know XP at all so if i'm talking rubbish sorry !!

Ok, goto the folder where your file is that is not renamed proply. then click Tools>Folder Options. then click the Veiw tab, You will see a list of things with boxes, goto the one that says "Hide Extensions for known file types" and uncheck it. goto OK then Apply. You can now rename files to what you like!
