Excel & Word Attachments won't open

  Rabi 18:30 18 May 2005

I cannot open on a particular PC, running Win XP Home Edition, Serice Pack2, any Excel or Word 2003 document that comes into my mailbox as an attachment. If I copy the file from my desktop on a pen-drive, it opens on other PC's.

When I try to open the file, for example, Excel opens, but then the Message I get is, " The file cannot be opened because your virus scanner has detected a problem with the file".

The file has been scanned by Yahoo "Norton" antivirus, no problem. It has been scanned AVG anti-virus, no problem. It opens other PC's, but this is the message I get when I try to run it on only one workstation. Is there some setting I can turn off so this file will load? Help!

I am runnig AVG free edition.
