I believe that the webarchive files are usually a product of Apple's Safari browser. They use them as a sort of offline storage for web pages.

You can always download Safari 3 for Windows, and open it that way.

I had the same problem and managed to see a little of the content of the html page by just opening with text reading program (pspad, ultraedit, notepad). Wont give you back the original web page, but better than nothing. Tell your friend who has a macintosh to send you a webpage another way ;)

I ended up telling my client to ask the one who sent him the file in a different fashion that can be opened in Windows/IE Browser.
