Default Help with Odin3

Okay so I downloaded everything as per the tutorial as per this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2290798 . I have searched several different sites and many different threads, almost finding my answer. My problem is that when I download the files they show up as image files and not tar. I am having some sort of problem with .tar file name with Odin. I found several links of how to, and great info but none of them are solving my problem. I found a link that almost had what I needed to fix it or was in the right direction, but somehow lost it or closed it. When searching using pda, the files do not appear in the file folder. For some reason they show as images in the file on my desktop. This is before and after extracting to see if either way made a difference. I even re-downloaded the links and they still show as image. I even tried typing it in manually it seemed to find the file but still did not work. I am using winrar one of the links I found said to try win7 or something but I couldnt get that to work either. I just want to root my new toy. Can someone point me in the right direction?
