Click on this link.

Then click on the operating system you're using.  (Windows, mac, etc.)

Follow the step by step instructions on that page to the letter.

First, find out where you downloaded it to, then right click on the folder. It should say something like "arduino-0017". It the right-click menu, it will say (assuming you're using windows) "Extract All..." click on that and then follow the instructions that come up to extract it. Make sure you remember where you extracted it too.
