    I attempted to download a file from a website, where I chose to 'open this file from its current location' (does not tell me what program the file was created in, but it is a text document). WordPad opens and then I get the following error popup:

    "Wordpad has caused an error in MSWRD832.CNV. Wordpad will now close. If you continue to experience problems, try restarting your computer."

    I get this same message at times when people send me attachments through emails. I generally have to tell them to put it into the email body directly so I can read it.

    Restarting my computer does nothing to resolve this issue. I am running WindowsME. (I have had many stability problems with WinME in the past, so have reinstalled the OS 5 or 6 times when it gets too bad.)

    Any suggestions?

    Email Microsoft about problem or search your error message on www.google.com. Sorry I can't help you anymore
