What's a .unk file and how do I view it?

Where did you get this file?

many pc games use ther own file types such as .txd .ipl and such maybe a file for a game?

After a little nosing about it seems the .unk file extension is an known file,

In other words a file is given an .unk extension if its not recognised.

I could be wrong though.

Thanks everyone. To answer your question VoG™, I got the file from an email from a (trusted)friend. She's a bit of a joker and so I was expecting a funny pic or vid but when I changed the file extension to jpg, mpg, avi etc all I get is either the file won't open or an error message.

get her to resend.

that link suggests right clicking it and opening with notepad then from the text you should figure out what it was....

hope so.

Thanks SG Atlantis®. I'll get her to resend it.

She resent it and it now has the .msg extension which I can now read. Must have been a bad transfer the last time around. Thanks for your comments anyway.
