Problems installing Limewire on an Acer AspireOne


I just received this new AspireOne for Christmas and don't understand Linux at all.
I'm trying to install Limewire now and until now everything seemed fine with the Download; apparently the program is now installed.
But when I try to run Limewire, it is not the program which opens but a strange list of files like /runLime.sh and names that don't say anything to me. I have also rebooted the Laptop twice but that doesn't seem to help. As I went on other websites looking for help, people were talking about "Codes" and "Unzipping" the file but I don't understand any of this!
Please, help me! This can't be that hard, right?!
How can I install Limewire on my AspireOne?

Please help me, I would be so grateful because this is starting to freak me out now!

Thanks in advance!
