Win 6 Ultimate 64 bit
MS Outlook 2010 32 bit Unable to open attachments

I use an win 7 64bit OS and have an MS office outlook 2010 32 bit installed for e-mails.

Recently, I noticed that some of the attachments that I get through e-mail, like pdf files etc am unable to open them.

I get a message stating that these unsafe attachments have been blocked.

Can some one please guide me whats happening and how do I set it right.

Thanks for your help.
