Outlook Express Denies access to attachments

I get a funny E mail from my sister sometimes,funny as in humorous.But the last few times Outlook express has not let it open saying something along the lines of,"OE removed access to your mail because of unsafe attachments"
Has my sister sent me a virus that she is unaware of? Or is it my settings?I have Antivirus on my PC .....it hasn't complained.
Any suggestions?
Thanks Geoff47

Open Outlook Express and on the top toolbar go to Tools > Options > Security tab. In the “Virus Protection” section, untick the box beside “Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus”. Click Apply and click OK to exit. You should now be able to access all your attachments.

Tools/Options, Security tab.

Untick "Do not allow attachments to be saved..."

Make sure that you have up to date anti-virus before doing this.
