XLR is the extension type for a Works Spreadsheet or Chart file. Do you have Works installed on XP? You will need Works or Office to open these files.

I think windows defaults to don't show file extensions of known file types. If you don't have Works or Office installed on your Win7 computer it will list these extensions since the file type isn't yet known.

If these aren't work's spreadsheets, then I'm not sure what the problem would be.
