According to google it maybe a tar file.

If you've got Winzip, see if that extracts it. Or if that doesnt work, see if changing the xvf extension to something like mov or some video format works.

Tar files normally end in tar

xvf is the command

as in

tar xvf filename

xvf means are "extract", "verbose" and "file

best thing to do is stick the file in to something like gspot (if it will open it) and see what it tells you about the file

I know students used to give files stange extensions to beat web filters on polytech/uni computers
