.docx and winrar

  theearlofsabden 15:25 13 Nov 2009


Everytime I try to open a word/excel file either in .doc/.xls or .docx/.xlsx format winrar kicks in and I'm asked to extract the file.

It was never sent in Winrar??

The attachment clearly states a simple .docx file of 12kb (for example), why is it not asking me to open or save the word/excel file, like it has a millions times before?

If I right click the file and select either, open/save (to desktop) or whatever - Winrar pops up?

Any ideas?
