Difficulties opening email attachments.

  ETAK 17:25 16 Dec 2004

When trying to open attachments from known sources I end up with the message.."this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in Folder Options control panel." Can anybody help?
I am running XP Home.

Then right click and choose "open with" and choose the program you want.

Diodorus Siculus... many thanks. Ended up with the message "Windows cannot open this file..it needs to know what program created it". This led me to find and download PowerPoint2002....therafter all was well.
Thanks for your help.
