    They are compressed files (well, at least a .rar is; not sure about .vxd). Certain compression programs allow you to open them (again, thats for .rar; not sure about .vxd)

    .vxd are windows virtual drivers. And as far as I know you CAN'T open them...

    Why on Earth do you want to look inside a driver file? It's exactly like trying to decode a dll file, or a exe file. And maybe it's even worse than reverse engineering. Anyway if you really want to insist, just try opening with Reshacker then... Who knows...

    You can always open it in notepad, but it probably won't make much sense unless there are any strings that you might understand.:)
