That sounds interesting; what editor are you using to create the files? It
sounds like it might be Notepad or something else that likes to silently add
.txt to all file names.

In the explorer window, go to the Tools menu and choose Folder Options. Now
select the View tab and find "Hide extensions for known file types" and make
sure this is not ticked. Click Apply, Ok, refresh the window and see if some
of the files now display as name.cgi.txt. If so, remove the ".txt" part and
try again.
