Attachment wont open

I have been emailed a file attachment with some important photographs in but can't open it.
I click on attachment and open and this comes up...
The file type does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the files folder options panel.
I am still lost. Help please but simple instructions please.

The file does contain 2 photographs according to the sender. I tried the other advice and it wont fix the problem

You need to fix the file association for Word files. Choosing Detect and Repair on the Help menu in Word should do this.

I have solved the problem.
I Downloaded Microsoft Office Word Viewer 2003 and the file opened.
