You can oncover the full filenames in windoze2K Explorer by going 
to Tools ->  Folder Options and then clicking on the View tab, from 
here the fourth tick box down is "Hide file extensions for known file 
types".  If this is unchecked you'll be able to see the .bin .exe and 
any other file extensions which windows already recognizes (such 
as .doc .xls .jpg .gif etc etc) when you look at the files in Explorer 
(as well as having them listed in a seperate column).

I can't remember where this option is under different versions of 
Windoze, but it'll be within the Folder Options (or just Options) 
section somewhere.

Hope that is of some help,

Neil
