Cannot unzip files

I want to install Portable Firefox on my account at school. I am not allowed to install programs or unzip folders. Aside from using a CD or USB device, how can I put the firefox files on my account? Are there any stand alone programs that will unzip a folder?

Coming tomorrow

I'm releasing Portable Firefox in the same self-extraction format (read: exe) as the other new apps tomorrow.

Would the exe need to be

Will the exe need to be installed or would it run on its own?

Self extractor

It's a self extractor. Think of it as a ZIP file with it's own built-in unzip program. You run it and tell it where to extract the Portable Firefox files. It can run right from the desktop.

No time

As happens, my schedule changed and I had work (read: programming and meetings that pay my rent) to attend to and I'm now out of state. So it'll arrive on Monday or Tuesday (I have both PTB and PFF to release and may space them out).
