I had the same proboem.  It is a 'feature' of the NT download - I
presume you have NT.  Simply rename the file to'tiff-v3_5_2.tat.gz'
and at least WinZip will understand it.  The download software
doesn't like multiple file name extensions so all but the last '.'
are replaced by '_' - I have no idea why the final 'gz' is 
changed to 'tar'.
