Ive been trying to download a couple of videos from a newsgroup. I can read the message but the video wont play. I get a load of programming jargon. Any ideas??

Not without the "programming jargon".

What does it say? We cn't diagnose unless we know the error message!!!!!!!!!

sorry. Its not an error message, and it looks like an entire program. Here is a bit of it:

M/&6]*-O*P&]B=0H96)E3<I)+.\87<%^]D*<@\8)SWZ4?H >=):W*IE?,6.,P
MQC+9?Y5W=1N&(S\N#@@4`;EO<QK)"R%&?S(I2TA ( D!8^N.%Z]PPXS0!]'^
I can send you the lot if you like. And if you understand it I will bow down to you sir!!

When the "programming jargon" (its not) appears what does it open in? Notepad, Windows Media Player, etc etc??

  Bazz2000 14:02 05 Oct 03

It just appears in outlook. In the bottom window as if it was an e-mail???

If it's from a newsgroup make sure you scan it for virus's before trying to open it.

Hang on Il try it

For some reason I can only save it either as a news file text file or unicode file whatever that is. Even when its renamed it still opens in outlook express
