Why is it such a big deal to open dat files?

You very kindly directed me to a website as I am having problems in opening attachments eg ATTO (2).data but can you explain why as before purchasing this PC with Vista Home Premium I ran Windows XP without any problem. The attachments are from my brother in Australia and I have until now always been able to open his attachments.

Thank you very much
