I have Windows XP home edition and I think IE7 a Friend has sent me some pictures as an attachment to an email but I can't open them when I try screen shows ;- In blue at top of window, C/documents and settings\Temporary internet files\content.IE5\SWY... in window, This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Creat an association in the folder Options control panel. I don't know what that means, I should like to get the piotures can anyone help please.

The attachment requires a Program File Association (ie: it needs to know what to open it with) Follow this LINK enter link description here

What do you mean by You think a friend sent you some picture. Did a friend send you picture or not. You will have heard of spam and viruses I am hoping.Make sure the pictures have actually come from a friend before trying to open them.

Why not ask your friend as to the format used ? Ask what program was used to create images and then you will know what program you need.
