    Last week a friend sent me an email file since then i cannot send attachments of my own e.g. .doc documents. When I try to upload them it just hangs and crashes my internet connection so that I have to reboot my machine.

    I tried wiping my entire HD and reinstalling everthing but I still have the same problem any ideas?

    What application are you using for email? Outlook, outlook express, Thunderbird?
