Shift+Right click on the file
Choose Open With "another app"
Browse to correct app and select it
tick the box that says "always use this app to open 7z files"
Click ok

A lot of time could be wasted on this. It sounds like you have never opened the files so they may not work anyway. Try downloading them again preferably from a different source. 7z is a compression format I've never come across.

I know I can use another computer to complete my download, but the problem is that everytime I encounter to download a 005 file in the future the problem is still the same. Anyway thanks for answering.

Avoid them and it'll not change your life. I'll steer clear too. WinRAR (free) is what I use on rare occasions for zipped files.

Those numbers 001, 002 ... are a set of spanned parts of the original zipped file. All of them must be in the same folder and you have to open the first segment (001) with winzip or 7-zip, and then ask for extraction. You cannot extract the individual 002, 003.... files.
7 zip is more efficient than zip or rar.
The reason why spanning is done is because of limitations on the size of the file that can be eMailed, capacity of the transportable storage (recall floppies, CD's), etc.

Yes that's correct. If even one of the zipped files has a problem or is corrupted you get nothing usable when you try to unzip them. It's all or nothing.
