Decompression Bomb?

Does this happen for every attachment or a specific one?

It's possible that the attachment is a Decompression Bomb.

Please edit your profile with ALL your hardware specs.

Lets do the basic.
- Open a CMD window and type chkdsk c: /f. It will ask if you want to check on next boot = Yes. Reboot and pay attention on the results.
- Open a CMD window and type sfc /scannow

To open the Command Prompt with Administrator rights:
  • Open the Start Menu
  • Type "command" in the Search box (without the quotes)
  • Right click on "Command Prompt"
  • Choose "Run as administrator" in the Context Menu
