If you need an alternative to winzip to unzip your files, 7-zip works well.
We will need a program other than notepad to use for editing the .cfg file. You can use other ones, I use this one.
Here are several choices for a miner program.
EWBF - Nvidia
Download the newest version, unzip and this is what you see.
Remember to delete the run.bat file
Normally you are used to editing the .bat file .We will be editing the miner.cfg file instead.

Simple miner (SMOS) -Nvidia
I really like SMOS, it does cost $2 permonth per rig. but it is pretty easy to set up and run.
You will need a USB stick 16gb or more.
