The TeX live download page says

7Zip is easy to install and use - just go to its website, download the
executable, and run it from wherever your browser has installed it.
Fire it up once on its own and it should install a context menu item so
that subsequently right-clicking on a compressed archive (the Tex live
iso in this case) will let you run it. Have you tried it? ... it's
quite straightforward! Using 7Zip isn't a TeX matter so mail me direct
if you want more help.
