Specs: Windows Vista
I have received an attachment and when I try to open it, windows asks me if I want to use the web to find a program or select a program with a list, which is the program I have to select to open a .dat file

There is no single programme that will open a .dat file. .dat is short for data and there are numerous applications that generate .dat files, all different and incompatible with each other. You could try Notepad and see if that produces readable data but depending on the format, it may not.

You need to get back to whoever sent you the Email and ask them what they used to create the file.
