Reading .shp, .sxh, etc. files

Hello,

Recently I was asked to look at a map that was created in an ESRI format, but I cannot seem to open it.  The folder that I was given has .shp, .shx, .sbx, .dbf, etc, file formats.  I downloaded the ArcGIS explorer, but all that I seem to be able to do is to open the .shp files ("Add Content"), and then all I see is a bunch of lines on a white background.  I don't want to edit the files, just to view them.  Is there a viewer that will allow me to do this?  What am I doing wrong?

 

Thanks

Jeff
