Have you tried opening them with notepad? or Wordpad?

Depending on if the information is in raw or formated code you might be able to view them in either editor.

I have tried with notepad & wordpad & unfortunatley the information is encoded.

I was told that a program called spider 1.16 would work but I haven't had any success.

They are usually not ment to be user readable data. They are usually ment so only the program can read them you may try a hex editor but beware if you do that dont change anything unless you know what you are doing could potential screw up the whole program
