    All my emails with attachments in Outlook express are removed as I download them.
    There is a cream coloured bar that says, OE removed access to the following unsafe attachments in you mail.
    These emails Are from people I know, emails with jpegs attached.
    How can I stop this from happening

    This is a security option in Outlook for virus protection. You can change it in Outlook at
    Tools>Options>Security>virus protection . It's the last check box under virus protection.

    In Outlook Express, go to Tools > Options > Security. There disable the option that reads "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus".

    This should solve the problem. But ensure that your AntiVirus is updated regularly.
