In the words of Douglas Adams: Don't Panic.
If you would read the docs, you would find the statement "You need WinPcap
if you are installing Snort on a Win32 platform." A quick Google Search
for 'Snort Windows wpcap.dll'  returns 44 results. The posting that
you need is the 6th one.
As for the tar.tar--Yet another reason not to use Microsoft. In it's
infinte knowledge of what you 'should' want, IE has converted the .tar.gz
file into a .tar file. It's not a .zip file, WinZip just recognizes that
a .tar file is. Simply rename the file to a .tar and use WinZip to open
it. Or use another browser to download the whole thing again.
