Hello Merrriwapomwa,

In Default Programs, check to make sure that Internet Explorer is set as the default program with all of it's associations set to it as well. This tutorial will help show you how to if needed.

That function is available under the Default Programs applet, which
you can access either from the Start menu or via the Control Panel.

However, that error message is often misleading. Tell us what you
are trying to do when that error message appears.

file outside of Windows Mail?
What type attachment is it, DOC, JPG, PDF, etc.?

You are talking in riddles :-(

Which problem do you have to face?
What do you want to see "fixed"?

Chuck,
Firstly, you hijacked someone else's post instead of starting your own.
Secondly, you never bothered to write in your own words what exactly your
problem was.
Thirdly, you criticized others answers as band aid solutions which were
given to the posters who asked the questions. Not to you as you never asked
.. Those answers may very well not applicable to you particular problem.
Now, if you care to, write down your problem, and if you have error message,
copy and post the error message verbatim.
If you criticize, make sure you have enough facts and knowledge to back it
up.

Hello Tom,

In Default Programs, double check to make sure that "Internet Explorer" is set as the default program with all of it's associations set to it as well. This tutorial will help show you how to if needed.
