Please send your questions to the R-help list, and not directly to me.

You provide your OS this time, but not any of the other information
requested in the posting guide, like your version of R.

What you did would be nice too. Used the menu option? Or used
install.packages() at the command line?

If this is an internet-enabled computer, the latter is by far
the easiest option: it will download and install the package
for you.

The filename shown here is not the one that's in the CRAN archive -
did you try to download it more than once? That may confuse Windows, I
don't know. I don't use Windows (another reason you shouldn't be
emailing me directly). But try renaming it without the (1) and see if
that works.
