Winmail.dat files

Any attachments a friend of mine sends me appear as a winmail.dat file and when I download them and try to open windows tells me it cannot open these files. I downloaded a program that said it could open them but it put a thing called start my search or something along those lines which was a hell of a thing to get rid of. I can forward these emails to my gmail account and they appear ok when I open chrome. Is there a safe program I can download to open them.

Well you haven't specified your operating system or e-mail client so I'm just guessing. but a quick Google turned up this, which may be of some help:
