When other people commented that you could have downloaded protext 
or miktex alone, they were of course right, but you shouldn't
need to download them separately now that you have downloaded
a whole ctan snapshot.

(CTAN home)\tex-archive\systems\win32\protext\ProTeXt-2.2-071608.exe

That is a big self-extracting zip file that you can run as an installer
(or burn to a CD).

I suspect (but am not sure) that what comes out after unzipping is 
the distribution CD contents, and you need to then run Setup.exe
as the *real* installer.

Look for protext-install-en.pdf within the unzipped contents, or
get it separately:
anf let that guide you through the installation.

Good luck.
