I have, in the 5 minutes since posting this, found my solution. There is a setting in Windows that hides the file assosciation (ie: .exe). Once you change this, it shows the extension. Below is how i did it incase anyone wlse is interested.
Open My Computer
Tools>>Folder Options>>View Tab
In here is a setting which reads "Hide extensions for known file types"
I have unchecked this, and now shows the extension, for example, you have the file named eplorer.exe and you can rename it to explorer.zip (not that it would work very well).
Hope this helps anyone else that had my problem.
