Hello everybody.

I'm suddenly having a problem opening media files, such as .mov .wmv .asf, etc in Outlook Express.

When I click on the file, I get a popup window with the XP security shield which says:

WINDOWS SECURITY WARNING

Windows found that this file is potentially harmful
To help protect you computer, windows has blocked access to this file.

It also prevents me from saving the file in any way, and I get error messages when I try to do that.

I have no trouble opening the files via Thunderbird, and it even worked ok when I forwarded the message to my Yahoo address and saved it that way.

The files are virus free and I even tried with a wma file which is months old. This seems to be a particular OE problem.

Also, I have also tried all the security config options via the tools menu in OE and nothing has worked.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
