I've received this .rtf file (attachment) ...

You can open these programs ...

Er, these are document files, not programs.

... in Notepad ... (1) the simple one comes on all MsFt machines ...

You can indeed open an .rtf file in Windows Notepad, but what you will see is a coded description of the document appearance, not the appearance itself! You need a different product to render the appearance, e.g. a word processor. Interestingly, Windows WordPad will open the user's .rtf document file, but even that will not render his graphics.
