email attachments

Hi everyone.
I have received an email with an attachment that I cant open!

I have done the "tools/options/security" bit and to my dissapointment the "do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potential be a virus" box did not have a tick in it.
I now do not have any idea what to do.

I am running outlook express on windows 98 and AVG says that the email does not have any virus's.

Any ideas..

Try forwarding the message to yourself - can you see the attachment now?

Hi, were you expecting this attachment? Is it from a source known to you to be reliable? If so, I would try to 'Open with' (with a right-click) then opt for Notepad or similar. What prefix does the attachment have?

Oooops sorry, I meant 'peg leg' of course!

Thanks for replies..

I think it's a pc problem as I have restarted my pc and everything now seems ok, I have opened the attachment no problems.

Thanks for your replies anyway.
