Attachments not opening

  Pip58 21:16 27 Sep 2005

I have received an e-mail with an attachment from a friend. It is safe but when I try to open the attachment all I get are boxes with little red crosses in the top left-hand corners. Can anyone advise me what the problem is please?

Hi VoG - sorry but I am "green" as far as computers are concerned but the name of the attachment is as follows:


does that make any sense to you?

Go back and try again!
Outlook Express\ Tools \Options . Under heading transfer of images untick Block images .........

Sorry missed out Security Tab after options.
Instructions given by VoG were correct.
I can only think you did not clik on Security Tab as there is no way you could miss the Block images ........

click here [and just wait a few seconds, for it to load]

Ummm the attachment? Is is a webpage? If it is and it has been sent from your friends computer and only that html page, then you won't see anything. You'll need to grab the images [probably in a folder of its own] to view everything. from your friend!

Come to think of it, the block images option is only available in XP SP2 is it not? [waits to be corrected].

Do you have Windows XP Pro/Home with Service Pack 2?

I am running 98SE and the " block images etc" is not an option.

Hi Powerless. The attachment is a card trick called The "Le Woogie" Card Trick Performed by Le Wogie.

There are about 8 playing cards displayed, you have to pick a card, don't click on just hold it in your head. Then you scroll down and the card you have picked has mysteriously disappeared.

I have already opened it on my friend's computer but it will not open in mine, except only in single cards but not the whole thing - so in other words the trick can't be seen. Phew! i hope that makes sense!
