I'm asking because I've recently learned that TuxRacer still works, but some of the expansion pack courses are .tar files.

I don't know about converting straight from .tar to .zip, but you could download WinRar (unlimited trial with a nag screen, but nice interface) or 7-Zip (open source, but stereotypical light/complicated interface). They're both able to open and extract .tar files on a Windows system and if you wanted to actually turn the .tar into a .zip, you could extract and re-compress to .zip.
