Windows XP - Now Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit).

Is the file from a trusted and known source? Do you have full admin privileges? I trust your antivirus and antimalware software is up-to-date also.

If the reply to manhunter2826's querys is YES then do the following.
  1. Open Windows Mail.
  2. Click on the Tools menu, then click Options.
  3. Click on Security tab, clear the "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus" check box, then click OK.
