I thought that the OP would have used "WinZIP" as the typical
first candidate, given the fact that .tbz means "tar bzip2"
archiving and compression. So that program should havve been
fine.

It can handle everything that tar, cpio, pax, compress
and (of course bzip2 (belongs to the OS!) and all other
native tools utilizing libarchive addresses. I'm quite
confident that this is a better "out of the box support"
than what "Windows" has to offer because handling archives
usually involves manually downloading and installing 3rd
party programs, like "WinZIP" or "WinRAR". Of course I
do not claim "all types", e. g. for RAR archives you
also need to have the system install the proper program,
but who uses RAR anyway (except the packagers of warez)... :-)
