    1. When trying to open existing or new graphic email attachments, the following error message appears: "This file does not have a program associated with it to perform this action. Create an association in the Folders Option control panel." Where do I find this?
    2. Have not been able to download Adobe Flash Player. Each time I click "Download" nothing happens. Could the Norton security program be part of this problem?

    Right click on the attachment that won't open and 'save as', save to your desktop. Right click the file and go to 'open with' and choose which program you would like to open the files as a defualt. Make sure the 'Always use the selected appication for files of this type' checkbox is checked and open. Now when you open the attachment in outlook, it should load in the application you selected.
    For Flash, go to www.adobe.com and search for standalone flash install. You should find the download page and be able to download a setup file to run locally which shouldn't be affected by norton or any other programs,
    Hope this helps,
    Stu.

    Thank you, Stu, the attachments are back in living color. Still having problems finding the stand alone flash download, but that's the least of my problems. Many thanks for your help.
