My OS is XP Prof' with Internet Explorer 8 and Outlook Express.I have received an email with an attachment,which,when I try to open it I receive the message "This File does not have a program associated with it for performing this action.Create an association in the Folder Options control panel".Please could anyone advise me how to do this.

Go to Start>Control Panel>Folder Options, then click on the Files types tab and then click on New to add an association - or words to that effect.
