Corrupt/unreadable RTF File? Cannot open.

My friend has this file he was working on in WordPad:

He was working on it yesterday and then clicked save a couple times. Today he can't open it.

Can anybody help? Thanks!

The file you are linking to looks like a binary executable file with the wrong file extension on it.  I can see the following as the only readable text:

Are you sure this is supposed to be an RTF and not some kind of exe or virus?

Has he tried to rename the file extension to something like .doc (For Word) and then open it?

I tried that. Didn't work.
Has he tried to create a new file with Wordpad, save and reopen it?
