Lately I am receiving a lot of messages that I am unable to open. It tells me that "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in My Computer by clicking View and the clicking Folder Options" I tried this but I hate to say that after I go to Folder Options I am not sure what to do. Can anybody give me some advice. What am I suppose to do at this point?

follow the steps in <u>this thread</u> and choose the program you need
(ie iexplore for pics, excel for .xls, etc)

be sure to run a virus scan on any message attachment
(download to a desktop folder, right click and select your antivirus software)

Hi DoyceJ,

I've added that to my favorites folder,
looks very useful.

Cheers, John
