Notes about the RTF file extension:



Incorrect file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your PC system. As such it is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other unfavourable system settings to identify slowdown issues.

The RTF file type is primarily associated with 'Rich Text Format File'.

Also used as Windows Help file script.

Often a system will be set so Word opens when an RTF file is encountered.

Note: This file type can become infected and should be carefully scanned if someone sends you a file with this extension.

As of August 2007, spammers have started to attach RTF file messages to E-mail. When opened you see the spammed message. This is similar to the XLS, PDF, and other similar spam techniques.
