As this says you shouldn't open a .pif file when sent as an attachment, as it can be used to send a virus.

I would ask the sender to send it in a different format.

that a .pif file is a "programme information file".

It's used to indicate to a programme certain parameters on opening up... eg Internet Explorer when opening a "normal", (as opposed to a maximised), window, uses info in it's .pif file to know what size, and where on the screen it should open.

I suspect that you've been sent the wrong file. Ican't see what use you'd have for one, unless it's something to do with PC technology and setups!

With apologies if I'm completely wrong!
