    In Windows, it can be open with Windows Picture and Fax Viewer or if you installed Microsoft Office, you can view with Microsoft Office Document Imaging. Using both is just double clicking on the file.

    Or you can open with Paint, look for Paint in: All Programs > Accessories > Paint just under Notepad. Click this and when it open, click File > Open and select your tif file.

    Other than that, you can use Irfanview or Picasa to view the tif file.

    Just double click and select "Windows Picture and Fax Viewer" but if it won't, then try downloading Irfanview or Picasa.

    If still unable or unsure, please ask again. There's some people are willing to give a hand, including me.

    Download a torrent downloader or google .tif patches for Windows.

    If you use the torrent, just follow directions, when you see a field called search or a field where you can enter text, type in the ACTUAL program (not the prompt boxes during initial set up). Search for .tif programs windows, and download patches. I have one but don't know how to get it to you.

    Try opening it in Windows Photo gallery if you have Vista, or if you have XP, try using some photo editing software. It does not have to come with windows.
