a problem opening attatchments with WordPad

  blobbyh 22:56 21 Apr 2005

When I attempt to open an attatchment the error message - WordPad caused an error in MSWRD832.CNV. WordPad will now close - appears.
I am running Windows Me and Aol 9 with a Broadband connection. Any help PLEASE !

Does Wordpad normally work okay?

What happens when you save the attachment/s to 'My Docs' first then open it from there?

(Trying to figure out if it is the attachment at fault or Wordpad or....maybe? some sort of security setting)

There are files that have been opened into 'My Docs' - some are available and can be read but others just show the same error message. some have even been sent by the same people. It is only text downloads that have the problem - photo downloads are fine.
