I have a .tiff and a .tfw file that I want to change into a GeoTIFF. When I try to open the file in ArcMap and ENVI 5.0, it is successful. However, in Google Earth it is not.
Is there anyway to create the GeoTiff in ArcMap or ENVI?

I like the QGIS answer, that's one way to get GDAL, and probably the least confusing.
The question was for ArcGis or ENVI, I can't comment on ENVI but in ArcGis use the Raster to Other Format tool which is available from ArcCatalog by selecting the rasters, right clicking, and selecting Raster to Other Format (multiple) from the popup menu. Select the output as TIFF and specify the output folder which will read and write the images from world tif to GeoTiff and as an added bonus, depending on your geoprocessing environments, will build pyramids and calculate statistics.
Don't forget to set the spatial reference for the images, either using Batch Define Spatial Reference or individually.
