E.g. file ABCDEFG.XYZ. XYZ is the file extension.

For more info we'll need to see the exact full name of the file you're asking about.

Answer
Actually I've yet to read that a file extension is invalid.

There is no rule in Windows that the .CNET files are invalid. So help.cnet is a valid file and extension. That said it could be invalid to open those with Word.
