You get a lot of NFO files with torrent downloads, the trouble is, the NFO extension is also used by Windows System Information files.
You can open them with Notepad, but you will lose any formatting, as a lot of the people who create these files like to put ASCII graphics in them. To keep the formatting open the file with Wordpad C:\WINDOWS\system32\write.exe
Thanks for all your help the file opens with notepad and wordpad.The program off Dipso is good but can only open files up to 500kb.The problem with the nfo file arose because I have a problem with a PC game crashing.The vendor asked me to send a saved system information file to them.They replied they could not open the file because it was corrupted.Surely they know about note/word pad.
