About the BZ2 file type:

Invalid file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your Windows PC. It is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other slowdown issues.

The BZ2 file is a compressed file created through the bzip2 application. This program is similar to the common file compression applications. It is also freely available and provides quality compression of data. The difference is that the files created with this, like the BZ2 file, are compressed within 10 percent to 15 percent best techniques. It is therefore two times faster when compressing and six times faster when decompressing. By creating a BZ2 file, the user can reduce consuming expensive resources like transmission bandwidth and space available in the hard disk. The bzip2 can create a BZ2 file by preventing the appearance of the same data in the file again. Same data appearing in the file will only be redirected using the first data found.
