Hi, my problem is that Outlook Express refuses to show me attachments (they're pdf files) which I know are virus-free. How can I get to view them? Cheers, Rob.

Have you got Adobe Acrobat Reader installed?

in OE

Tools>options>security

Now uncheck the box that says "Do not allow files to be opened or saved that could be potentially a virus etc etc"
Or as andyj has said

"Have you got Adobe Acrobat Reader installed?"

Thanks madboy33™ I was having a problem with Tools>options>security. I unchecked the box on "Do not allow files to be opened or saved that could be potentially a virus etc" Now able to look at my attachments (with caution) hope you have solved fzappa's problem as well
Thank's again Nipsen 2

glad to be of service

just make sure that you have an up to date anti-virus software running when you save the files or open them
