Problem opening file with extension .tar

I have downloaded a file from BT with the above extension and cannot open it. In the properties it says it is a GZ file, but does anyone know what programme it needs?

Thanks VoG. It would seem that my windows compressed utility won't work so I'll get Winzip and see if that works. Cheers.

It's a compressed file. You'll need a program to un-compress it like this one:

It is free.

Winzip won't open TAR files.

Well done, Valvegrid, I'd never have found that one. It never ceases to amaze me the help that's available to novices like me.
Keep up the good work.
