    Problem with opening certain files

    When attempting to view certain attachments I get an error message stating: temporary internet files\low\content\.ie5, file me be in use by another application, the file format may not be supported by any of the installed converters, or the file may be corrupt. However, I can save the file and then open it.

    What is causing this, and how can I fix?

    Could you please Run a Cleanup... Go to Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Cleanup

    If you haven't run it before Select your HDD And Select for all Users on this Computer

    After that Clean up all the Files

    Hope This Helps,
    Josh
