.gz files are gzip (GnuZip) compressed files. Like .zip files. So you need to 
unzip them first. I use 7-zip which is freeware. Use: "open with ..." as you 
suggested to pick the programme you are using to unzip files. It's been so long 
since I've used WinZip I have no idea if it will do the job.

So first unzip the .gz file and then you'll end up with the .sla file which is 
the scribus file extension.

If "open with ..."  is not working open any folder then to [tools][folder 
options] and the select the [file types] tab and choose a programme. It takes a 
while for the list to populate.
