SYMOTOM,

What you do with the file depends on what type of file it is?  The file is most likely used by Nero and is a CD image.  The most common uses of the extension are a Nero CD-Image File or a Norton Registry Entry (http://www.filext.com/detaillist.php?extdetail=nrg&Search=Search).  If you have Nero then you could try to open the file with that program.  If the file came with a download and you don't have Nero then it is still probably an image.  Other programs will be able to use the file.  Look at this page (http://filext.com/info/showthread.php?t=1646) for a suggestion of another program to use.

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.

A word of caution though.  If you have concerns over the source of the file then it is best to not just open it with a program you think will work.  It is best to contact the source of the file or just not mess with it.  If the file is really important then you may want to make a copy before you try to open it.  Opening a file with the wrong program could damage the file or even cause damage to your computer.
